Ontario is building five new high-quality, modern schools that will better support student achievement and well-being in Halton.
The new projects — all of which are located in fast-growing Milton — are:
Across the province, Ontario is building 28 new schools and expanding and renovating 23 existing ones. This investment will ensure more students are benefitting from state-of-the-art learning facilities that can deliver a full range of programming.
Investing in better buildings for better learning is part of the government’s plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Building new and improved schools is one of the many ways our government is supporting improved student achievement and well-being. The investment announced today will have a strong impact on students’ learning experience and will help them reach their full potential.”
— Indira Naidoo-Harris, MPP for Halton
“High-quality schools are the heart of our local communities and the foundation of our publicly funded education system. We know that better buildings support better learning. The funding announced today is a strategic investment in student achievement and well-being, and in the long-term prosperity of our province.”
–– Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Education
“We thank the Ontario Ministry of Education for this great news, which will allow more families from the Milton area to exercise their right to French-language Catholic education. Many families wish to register their child in a French-language Catholic school. We look forward to working with the Ontario Ministry of Education on making this possible in Halton region and in other communities served by our school board.”
