“The COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on the health and wellbeing of all Canadians,” said Monsef. “Today, more than ever, we understand the need to support our communities so that they can preserve their assets to continue to provide access to quality programs and essential services. That’s why we’re investing over $ 1.2 million – 80 cents on every dollar of total funding – through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream to improve recreational facilities, connectivity, and essential infrastructure in six communities in southern and eastern Ontario . Canada’s infrastructure plan is investing in thousands of projects, creating jobs across the country and building cleaner, more inclusive communities. “

The Ontario government is contributing more than $ 323,000 to six projects.

“These repairs and modernizations in six communities will improve the health and safety of the critical places where our communities meet,” said Smith. “After the pandemic, it is more important than ever to preserve the life of the municipal infrastructure so that it can be used now and in the years to come.”

Other projects included shoreline rehabilitation in the town of Goderich, high-speed broadband internet in the Morris-Turnberry parish, football clubhouse repairs in Thorold; and upgrades to the community office, fire hall, and library in Newberry Village.
