Norseman JMS receives over $6M for renovations

Etobicoke-Lakeshore school a recipient of Ontario’s Capital Priorities Funding

October 23, 2015

Ontario is investing in new schools and school improvement projects throughout the province, including right here in Etobicoke-Lakeshore.

Our riding’s own Norseman JMS will receive capital priorities funding of $6,002,927 to build an addition to the school that will replace the current portables. This will ensure that all students at Norseman School will be housed in the main school building.

Ontario is providing school boards across the province with more than $11 billion to help build new schools in areas of high growth, improve the condition of existing schools and invest in projects to reduce surplus space through school consolidations.

Giving students the best possible learning environment is part of the government’s plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan.

QUOTES

“I am delighted that the Norseman community, which has long been advocating for a permanent brick and mortar addition to address accommodation issues and support enrollment growth, will receive an addition. I have closely worked with and will continue working with local parents, schools, and school boards to ensure the facilities our students need are provided.”

—  Peter Milczyn, MPP for Etobicoke-Lakeshore

“Our government is proud to invest in capital projects that are supporting students by giving them improved facilities and greater opportunities to learn in a high-quality environment.”

— Liz Sandals, Minister of Education
