TORONTO — Students in the Ottawa region will benefit from improved learning environments thanks to investments from the Ontario Government that go towards additions and renovations in a number of schools.
Provincial representatives recently announced eight local school infrastructure projects for the Ottawa area.
These projects will provide students with modern facilities and help reduce the cost of under-used space, states a release issued by the Ministry of Education June 12.
The eight new projects include:
in Ottawa, an addition to Agincourt Road Public School and renovations to Woodroffe Avenue Public School and Pinecrest Public School;
in Nepean, additions to Sir Robert Borden High School and Merivale High School, and renovations to Bell High School and Briargreen Public School; and
in Gloucester, renovations to Gloucester High School.
Ontario is investing $18.3 million in the Ottawa region for these schools.
Since 2013, the government has invested $9.3 billion in capital funding for school boards to support over 121 new schools and over 144 additions and renovations.
