Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the Ministry of Children and Youth Services is investing more than $18 million for repairs, renovations and fire safety improvements at over 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 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 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 also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
