Ontario Helping to Upgrade and Repair York Region Community Agencies

Improving Safety and Security for Ontario Families

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:

  • $80,000 to Reena for the replacement of staircase windows, damaged frames, new main floor flooring, and replacement of kitchen cabinetry and bathroom upgrades.
  • $120,000 to Children and Family Services of York Region for the repair and resurfacing of the driveway.
  • $6,500 to Kinark Child and Family Services Corporate Office and Training Centre for the upgrade to the front parking area.
  • $5,200 to Blue Hills Child and Family Centre for upgrades to pool fencing. 

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.
