Ontario Investing $9.7 Million for New and Renovated Schools in Trinity-Spadina

Province Supporting Student Achievement And Well-Being With Better Places To Learn

Ontario is investing $9.7 million in local students by building and renovating two schools in the Trinity-Spadina community.
This year, work will begin on one new school and one renovated school, to help meet the needs of local students and accommodate changes to enrollment levels now and in the future.


Local projects include:

 

  • A $9.4 million investment in a new elementary school with the Toronto Catholic District School Board will be built in Trinity-Spadina to accommodate students from the consolidation of St. Raymond Catholic School and St. Bruno Catholic School.
  • A $240,000 investment in St. Luke Catholic School to renovate classroom space to accommodate incoming students from Senhor Santo Cristo Catholic School.


This is part of the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province's history -- about $160 billion over 12 years, which is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals.


Giving students the best possible learning environment is part of the government’s economic plan to build Ontario up and deliver on its number one priority — growing the economy and creating jobs. The four-part plan includes investing in talent and skills, including helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is also making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history and investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
