The purpose of the study is to determine a site location, design, and preliminary cost estimates. The study will also recommend possible partnerships, along with other details.

City Manager, Diane Hunter, says they expect to start construction of the Visitor Centre in 2021 and finish by 2023.

In 2013, the Visitor Centre moved into the Pomeroy Sport Centre as a temporary fix after the old centre was decommissioned and demolished.
