Students to Benefit from Modern Learning Environments
Ontario is building 28 new schools, and expanding and renovating another 23 to support more than 21,000 students across the province as they learn and grow. This investment will ensure students are learning in high-quality, modern buildings that can better support their achievement and well-being.
Premier Kathleen Wynne made the announcement today at Courcelette Public School in Toronto, where funding will support an addition to the current building to accommodate 138 more students.
Ontario is making this investment in 51 schools in 36 communities to address demand in areas of high population growth, and to replace schools that are in poor condition.
Investing in new and better schools, and improved learning environments, is part of the government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
