School house project EAF funding

Schoolhouse Project - Enabling Accessibility Fund awarded

We are thrilled to announce the museum was successful in its request for funding for the Pemberton Station School project from the Government of Canada’s Enabling Accessibility Fund. The museum will see an investment of $36,793 in funding for the project which will ensure accessibility to this new educational programming and exhibit space at the Pemberton Museum.  The space will also be used for school group programs. The project ensures this new community space will be accessible to all people regardless of mobility or agility.  The museum continues to strive to provide accessibility improvements to the museum site and are grateful for the support from the Government of Canada.

The Schoolhouse construction is well underway despite many challenges getting this project off the ground earlier this year.  The accessible door has been ordered and the ramp will be constructed later this fall.  We plan to have the building completed by late November 2021.  We look forward to seeing you in this new space!
