CapilanoU, Carleton, Laurentian embark on athletics facilities projects

Capilano University, Carleton University, and Laurentian University are evaluating or pursuing projects to improve their athletics facilities. CapilanoU has announced that it will “kick off” the installation of a FIFA-grade turf field at its Squamish campus. The project is slated to be completed in advance of the 2024 CCAA Women’s Soccer National Championship in November CTV News reports that the City of Ottawa and Carleton are in discussions around the possible construction of an aquatic centre with an Olympic-sized swimming pool at the university. The two parties would jointly finance and build a competitive pool, a warmup pool, diving facilities, and stands for spectators. Laurentian has received a $250K donation from the Robertson-Martin family to fund the installation of a new international-quality sprung floor in its Ben Avery Gym. Work is expected to be completed by the beginning of August.
