Ontario is investing $298,100 for repairs and renovations at seven Scarborough-Guildwood non-profit agencies as part of its Partner Facility Renewal program.
These investments include:
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the province is investing $16 million for upgrades and repairs at more than 170 community agencies across Ontario. These investments help developmental services, community services, Violence Against Women agencies, and Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy agencies better serve clients.
Ontario is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province’s history — about $160 billion over 12 years. This is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals. In 2015, the province announced support for more than 325 projects that will keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life.
Supporting community agencies that help those most in need is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part plan includes investing in talent and skills, including helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history and investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
“Community agencies provide invaluable help to so many residents in Scarborough-Guildwood and across Ontario. Investments in these projects will result in stronger services and better programs for those who use them in our community. This type of investment in infrastructure renewal means that agency staff can focus on what it is they do best – delivering high-quality supports in our communities.”
— Mitzie Hunter, MPP for Scarborough-Guildwood
“Our government believes that people in need deserve all the help we can give them. By investing in our community facilities, we are making sure that vulnerable Ontarians have safe, accessible places to go when they need support the most.”
— Dr. Helena Jaczek, Minister of Community and Social Services
