A stretch of Highway 1 in Meteghan

The Municipality of the District of Clare and the Government of Canada are proud to announce the $1.5-million funding of an active transportation project that will see to the revitalization and expansion of a system of sidewalks in Meteghan. 

Repairing, widening, and extending sidewalks in the community will enhance accessibility, functionality, and safety for residents, particularly seniors and people with mobility issues.

“To meet the needs of our aging community and to encourage active living among our residents, accessibility is a top priority for the Municipality of Clare," says Yvon LeBlanc, Warden for the Municipality of Clare. "We are grateful for the Government of Canada’s contribution towards this project, which will permit safe active transportation along Highway 1 in Meteghan, connecting the commercial and service district with our residences, as well as a state-of-the-art long-term care facility slated to open in 2023.”

The overall cost of the project is estimated to be $1,591,009 plus HST. The federal government will invest $995,558, while the Municipality of Clare will fund the remainder of the 4-km sidewalk project.
