Ontario promises funds for facilities investment

Apr 2, 2024 | Public | 0 comments

The newly released 2024 Ontario budget promises an $820 million investment in recreational and health care facilities. That includes $200 million over three years to launch a new application-based fund targeting what’s termed “critical need for infrastructure support in the sport and recreation sectors” and $620 million over 10 years to augment an existing fund for repair and upgrades in health care facilities.

The funds are aimed at extending the life of existing facilities and providing new venues for a growing population to participate in physical and community activities.

“This funding will allow health care system partners to address urgent infrastructure renewal needs such as upgrades or replacements of roofs, windows, security systems, fire alarms and back‐up generators,” the budget document states. “Investing in new and revitalized sport, recreation and community facilities for youth and families will ensure that the people of Ontario can live, work and play in their local communities.”
