New and Renovated Schools for Toronto Students

Ontario Investing in Student Success

Ontario has approved the building of four new schools and the renovation of eight schools in the City of Toronto to provide students with modern and improved places to learn while creating local construction jobs.

New schools will be built for:
  • St. Margaret Catholic School
  • St. Fidelis Catholic School
  • George Webster Elementary School
  • Avondale Public School

 Renovations will be made to:

  • St. Malachy Catholic School
  • St. Paschal Baylon Catholic School
  • St. Ursula Catholic School
  • St. Victor Catholic School
  • St. Eugene Catholic School

Supporting a world-class education system is part of the government's economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario's greatest strengths — its people and strategic partnerships.
