The Kempenfelt Conference Centre will be returned to the Province of Ontario after Georgian College ceases to operate it on Oct. 31, 2017.
The reconveyance of the centre is in accordance with the covenants placed on the title when the property was originally transferred from the Province to Georgian in 1981.
“We are pleased with this outcome,” says Georgian College President and CEO MaryLynn West-Moynes. “With this conclusion, Georgian will not be required to invest further time, human and financial resources to divest itself of the property. We thank the province for its willingness to continue our conversations and arrive at this decision, which is the best solution for all parties.”
“I would like to thank all those who chose the Kempenfelt Conference Centre as their destination for special events and conferences,” adds West-Moynes, “and acknowledge all past and present employees of the centre who have provided exemplary service to our clients since 1981.”
The college will continue to operate the centre until the end of October. It will honour all bookings and accept new bookings within this timeframe.
