Fund-raising efforts by the Regional Occupational Centre in Port Hawkesbury to renovate and expand its facility is getting some help from the province.  Cape Breton-Richmond MLA and Acadian Affairs Minister Michel Samson has announced the province will contribute $50,000.  The ROC centre is looking to raise $800,000 for the upgrade. The federal government earlier committed $500,000 to the project.
The ROC centre announced its plans to renovate and expand in March.  Part of the work includes adding 34-hundred square feet.  It currently has four thousand square feet of space.
It’s hoped the project will be completed by November.
