The Ontario government will fund $18.5 million worth of building repairs and renovations at 198 social and community agencies across the province to ensure buildings accessible and in good working order to serve people with developmental disabilities, victims of domestic violence and children with special needs and mental health needs.
“Supporting infrastructure repairs for community agencies is an important part of ensuring that people can continue to safely access the services they depend on,” said Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, minister of children, community and social services.
“These spaces are vital for people with developmental disabilities, women and children experiencing domestic violence, Indigenous people, and children with special needs, and this investment alleviates pressures so that staff can focus on doing their work.”
More than 700 projects received cash through the Partner Facility Renewal program in 2021, to be used for repairs and upgrades to roofing, windows, security systems, fire alarms, electrical, mechanical, HVAC and plumbing systems.
