The Municipality of North Cowichan has received $1,067,684 dollars in grant money to build a new field house at the Cowichan Sportsplex.

The new field house will add fully accessible public washrooms and change rooms, a multi-purpose community meeting, and event space, and a much-improved facility administration area.

Construction on this new field house will start in mid-2020.

Rowing Canada is establishing a national training centre at Quamichan Lake and the Cowichan Sportsplex following the 2020 Toyko Olympics.

The Chesterfield Sports Society raised an additional $388,316 dollars for this project.
