Community agencies across northern Ontario will be getting much needed repairs and renovations through a $1.6-million investment from the provincial government.
This includes an investment of $678,500 at Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) to help make it fully accessible.
These repairs and renovations also help agencies provide better services for people with developmental disabilities, women and children experiencing domestic violence, Indigenous people and children with mental health needs.
“When community agencies are able to make necessary repairs to their buildings, they can better focus on the people they serve,” said Todd Smith, Minister of Children, Community and Social Services,
Through the annual Partner Facility Renewal program, the government is investing a total of $11.5 million in more than 350 projects like this.
