Ontario is investing in repairs, renovations, upgrades and fire safety in York Region to provide better, more secure and accessible facilities for the people who use their services.
These investments include:
This investment is part of Ontario’s Partner Facility Renewal program, which helps local agencies repair and renovate their facilities to better serve people in the community. This support is also helping agencies ensure that their buildings meet improvements to Ontario’s Fire Code, in order to keep residents safe.
Ontario is making the largest infrastructure investment in hospitals, schools, public transit, roads and bridges in the province’s history. To learn more about what’s happening in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
Investing in community agencies that help those most in need is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“These local agencies provides critical services to the most vulnerable people in our community. This investment will help agencies make important safety upgrades and ensures that they are able to continue to provide people with safe, accessible places to go when they need support.
Community and developmental service agencies play an invaluable role in providing critical services to many people across Ontario. By investing in repairs, renovations, upgrades and fire safety, we are ensuring that individuals that require services at these vital agencies have access to improved facilities and that staff who work tirelessly assisting those who require supports can focus on what they do best: helping people in our communities.”
— Dr. Helena Jaczek, Minister of Community and Social Services and M.P.P., Oak Ridges-Markham
“Safety measures like upgraded fire alarm systems, fire doors, and sprinkler systems reduce the impact of fire and help save lives. Buildings and facilities across the province that provide community services will benefit from enhanced fire safety measures – further protecting Ontario’s most vulnerable and giving peace of mind to their loved ones.”
— Marie-France Lalonde, Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services
