March 30, 2015 - The City of Thunder Bay today received a registered letter from the Federal Government of Canada indicating that the proposed Thunder Bay Event & Convention Centre is ineligible for Federal Gas Tax funding based on the facility design proposal as submitted and the intent for an AHL team to be the lead tenant. The letter indicated the facility would be eligible if the Convention Centre was built as a separate stand-alone building.

This matter will come back to the April 13 Council Meeting with an update.
