Holy Angels Convent project

Province taxpayers are putting up $3.2 million to help turn the former Holy Angels Convent into an arts and culture centre.

Premier Stephen McNeil says the renovations will transform the convent building into a hub for culture and innovation.  He said what’s been missing is a hub, an incubation centre for artisans and performers.

New Dawn Centre is putting up a million dollars for the work which will maintain the exterior appearance of the 130 year old building and provide a new interior.
