VAUGHAN─ MPPs Steven Del Duca and Chris Ballard are pleased to announce that Ontario is investing $211,700 for repairs and renovations in York Region non-profit agencies as part of its Partner Facility Renewal Program.
This investment includes:
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services is investing $15 million for upgrades and repairs at more than 140 community agencies across Ontario. These investments help children’s treatment centres, children’s aid societies and youth centres better serve Ontario’s children, youth and families.
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.
“Our government’s investment in these local agencies ensures that facilities are maintained in good condition and that the focus remains on the needs of the children, youth and families who rely on the services they provide.”
─ Steven Del Duca, M.P.P., Vaughan
“These organizations have helped countless children, youth and families in Newmarket-Aurora. This funding will allow for much needed repairs and upgrades, allowing the people running the facility and programs to keep their focus where it is most needed – on their clients. Congratulations to all of the recipients of the Partner Facility Renewal funding.”
─ Chris Ballard, M.P.P., Newmarket-Aurora
“Ontario’s children’s treatment centres, children’s aid societies and youth centres are there to support families by delivering essential services to our children and youth. Investing in their facilities is critical so that they can stay focused on helping young people thrive.”
─ Michael Coteau, Minister of Children and Youth Services
Approved projects receiving funding include: upgrading accessible washrooms, replacing windows, repairing roofs, replacing furnaces, expanding program space and installing alarms for carbon monoxide and fire.
