The Ontario Government is helping community agencies repair and renovate their buildings so they can continue providing vital services to children and families, including here in Chatham-Kent.
“Our local agencies work hard every day to help people who need extra support,” said MPP for Chatham-Kent-Leamington Rick Nicholls in a media release. “Those who provide and those who rely on important services in Chatham-Kent and Leamington will have safer places with these investments.”
“We want our community agencies to spend more time helping people and less time worrying about covering the costs of building repairs,” said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services. “Our government understands the need for targeted investments while balancing our responsibility to efficiently manage resources.”
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the government is investing a total of $1.6 million in more than 60 projects that will upgrade and repair community agencies across Ontario.
“Helping our community partners maintain and upgrade their buildings just makes sense,” said MPP Rick Nicholls. “We want to make sure their buildings are safe and in good shape so they can provide quality services and programming for years to come.”
