Province Supporting Students and Families with New and Improved Facilities

Ontario is supporting families in Mississauga with a new school that will provide a modern learning environment for students and more licensed child care spaces.

Dipika Damerla, MPP for Mississauga East-Cooksville, was at Fairview Public School in Mississauga  to announce that the province is investing $16.1 million  for the future Elm Drive Public School  that will accommodate over 650 students and includes four new child care rooms with 73 new licensed child care spaces.

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.
