Upgrades will help Joe Mavrinac reduce emissions by 177 tonnes

June 12, 2024 – The Joe Mavrinac Community Complex in Kirkland Lake, Ont., is on its way to becoming more energy-efficient and accessible, thanks to $2.3 million in funding from Green and Inclusive Community Buildings (GICB) program, and another $598,598 from the Town of Kirkland Lake.

The Joe Mavrinac complex is a recreational and sport hub for the Timiskaming District, with gyms, an ice rink, a pool, a squash court, and community rooms.

The facility’s boilers, ventilation and compressor systems will be upgraded for energy efficiency; those energy cost savings will be put toward programming. Accessibility upgrades, meantime, include grab bars and wider automated doors.

These energy efficiency enhancements are expected to reduce the facility’s energy consumption by an estimated 28% and GHG emissions by 177 tonnes annually.
