Ontario is helping community agencies provide better, safer facilities for individuals and families in Guelph and Wellington County.
As part of the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the province is investing $25,000 for repairs and renovations at 2 local non-profit agencies in Guelph and Wellington County that provide services to people with developmental disabilities.
This investment will help Guelph and Wellington County agencies maintain their facilities, as well as improve the safety and security of those who use them. For example:
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the government is investing a total of $12.4 million for upgrades and repairs at more than 700 community agencies across Ontario. The investments help developmental service, Aboriginal health and wellness and violence against women agencies maintain the facilities where they provide services and programming.
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 local agencies work tirelessly every day to help people who need specialized care and assistance. These investments will mean safer places for those who provide, and those who rely on, social services in Guelph & Wellington County.
— Liz Sandals, MPP Guelph
“Helping our community agencies pay for repairs and make much needed renovations lets them focus on providing support to the people who need it, and less time finding the funds they need to keep their buildings safe and secure.”
— Dr. Helena Jaczek, Minister of Community and Social Services
