Ontario is helping community agencies provide better, safer and more accessible facilities for individuals and families in Etobicoke-Lakeshore.
As part of the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the province is investing $102,000 for repairs at Women’s Habitat in Etobicoke-Lakeshore, a local community agency that provides services to women and their children experiencing violence.
This investment will help Women’s Habitat to maintain and improve their facilities.
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the government is investing a total of $16.2 million for upgrades and repairs at more than 200 community agencies across Ontario.
This funding is part of the largest infrastructure investment in Ontario's history -- more than $130 billion over 10 years, which will support more than 110,000 jobs per year on average, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals across the province.
Supporting community agencies that help those most in need is part of the government's plan to build Ontario up. The four-part plan includes investing in people's talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province's history, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure retirement savings plan.
“Our government recognizes that the safety and accessibility of community agencies, such as Women’s Habitat in my riding of Etobicoke-Lakeshore, is essential to the staff who provide specialized care and assistance to those in need, and to those who rely on these services."
— Peter Milczyn, MPP Etobicoke-Lakeshore
“Community service providers want to help people, not worry about leaky roofs or broken furnaces. Helping community agencies pay for repairs and important renovations means they can focus more on the people they serve, and less on finding the funds they need to keep their buildings safe, secure and in good repair.”
— Dr. Helena Jaczek, Minister of Community and Social Services
