This is part of a new investment across the province to build 39 brand new schools and undertake 40 major renovations or additions that will include more than 2,700 licensed child care spaces for children aged 0-4, helping more families access safe and affordable child care closer to home.
Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
"Our government’s investment is great news for families in Cambridge I am proud that we are making a real difference for students and families now and for future generations.”
— Kathryn McGarry, MPP for Cambridge
“École secondaire catholique Père-René-de-Galinée is a destination of choice, as are all Csc MonAvenir’s schools. Its top quality education and rich school-life render PRDG the go to French Catholic secondary school in the region. We are grateful that the Ministry of Education (MOE) recognizes the growing demand to attend this school. This being said, other Csc MonAvenir’s schools have also been experiencing significant enrollment growth and we hope that the MOE will recognize their needs for expansion or, alternatively, will fund the opening of new French Catholic schools.”
— Melinda Chartrand, Chair of Csc MonAvenir.
“These new schools, renovations and additions are an important investment for communities across Ontario. They will help to build a strong foundation for our children's education. These projects will provide students with great learning environments and will support working families with access to safe, quality licensed child care closer to home.”
— Indira Naidoo-Harris, Minister of Education and Minister Responsible for Early Years and Child Care
