Community Hubs Capital Funding: Minor Retrofits and Accessibility Ontario Ministry of Education

September 29, 2017 • 2 min read

As a response to recommendations in Community Hubs in Ontario: A Strategic Framework and Action Plan, the province committed to supporting the use of schools as community hubs.

In May, 2016, the Province announced a $90 million investment to further enable the development of community hubs by expanding child care and child and family support programs in schools and create spaces in schools for community use. The province will provide:

  • $20 million to create space for new child care and child and family support programs through Ontario Early Years Child and Family Centres in schools
  • $18 million to retrofit existing child care space within a school to open up more spaces for children under four years old
  • $50 million to renovate surplus school space to make it available for use by community partners and the public

This funding is to be used to retrofit available space in schools into community hub space and to improve the accessibility of schools to allow greater opportunities for use by the Community. The funding has been allocated and provided to all school boards in Ontario to encourage them to work with community partners to explore mutually advantageous opportunities to share space in schools.
