Ontario Investing $84 Million to Improve Schools in Ottawa

Province Making Historic Infrastructure Investment

Ontario is investing an additional $84 million in Ottawa and the Eastern region over the next two years to repair and renew schools for a total investment of $212 million to ensure that they continue to be safe and modern places for students to learn.  The increase in funding per school board is as follows:

  • Ottawa-Carleton District School Board is receiving a $55 million funding increase, for a total investment of $133 million.
  • Ottawa Catholic School Board is receiving a $17 million funding increase, for a total investment of $45 million.
  • Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est de l'Ontario is receiving a $7 million funding increase, for a total investment of $21 million.
  • Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario is receiving a $5 million funding increase, for a total investment of $13 million.

 

The funding will enable local schools boards to repair roofs, update HVAC units and modernize electrical and plumbing systems. It will also significantly improve more visible elements of schools that impact students’ learning and well-being, including flooring, walls, ceilings, playing fields and more.

 

The province is investing an additional $1.1 billion in school infrastructure across the province, which builds on $1.6 billion in existing funding that has been allocated for repairs and renewals over the next two school years, for a total of $2.7 billion.
