CHARLOTTETOWN The Confederation Centre of the Arts will be in the spotlight Monday when it receives a cheque from the federal government for more than $1 million.

The Charlottetown Guardian says the money will go to infrastructure upgrades at the Charlottetown institution.

The Confederation Centre of the Arts was founded in 1964 as Canadas national memorial to the Fathers of Confederation, who gathered at Province House in 1864 to discuss the creation of the country.

This may not be the last federal government announcement for the centre.

Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty promised in his budget last week that $60 million would go over two years to support the infrastructure costs of cultural and heritage institutions.

Flaherty went as far as to single out the Confederation Centre, along with a handful of other arts centres across the country.

Organizations: The Confederation Centre, Province House
