The City’s premier recreation facility, the INVISTA Centre, will keep its name for another two-year term. Last night, City Council approved the extension of a naming rights agreement with INVISTA Canada that will now be in place until 2025.
“INVISTA considers the City of Kingston a preferred partner, and we’re honoured to be able to extend our naming rights partnership with the City for the INVISTA Centre for an additional two years,” says Dennis McAllister, Site Manager, INVISTA Kingston. "The two years we lost due to the pandemic was a challenging time for us all, but we’re moving forward, and we take great pride in being able to support the Kingston community.”
The INVISTA Centre features four NHL-sized ice pads, a fitness centre, several meeting rooms, public art, four EV chargers, and the Haymakers canteen. The adjacent CaraCo Home Field is a high-quality venue for school track and field meets and offers an extended season for field sports due to the artificial turf surfacing. In addition to INVISTA’s financial contribution to the continued operations of this multiplex, Desjardins Insurance, Selkirk Homes, MNP and CUPE 109 offer ongoing support of the INVISTA Centre.
“The City of Kingston is honoured to be able to continue to partner with INVISTA Canada through its support of the INVISTA Centre,” says Lacricia Turner, Director, Recreation & Leisure Services, at the City of Kingston. “INVISTA Canada is a major employer within the City and has been a great community partner for many years. We look forward to our continued works through this well-established, long-standing partnership.”
