INVESTING IN MILTON
Our government is continuing to make historic investments for the people and families of Milton.
The Ontario government is investing an additional $2 million, for a total investment of $41.3 million, to improve St. Kateri Tekakwitha, the former Milton #3 CSS, with the creation of 69 student spaces. This is part of our commitment to building modern, accessible, and technologically connected schools for our children.
The new addition at St. Kateri Tekakwitha is great news for our community. It will provide choice and flexibility for families, and new opportunities for the children of Milton.
Along with the expansion of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, I am proud to also announce a seventh new school in Milton. The Ontario Government is investing $17.9 million to build Milton #9 Catholic Elementary School to support the creation of 671 student spaces and 88 childcare spaces.
This is the third school expansion and seventh new school for Milton since 2018, totalling over $200 million for our community. As your MPP, I will keep taking strong action for our families and students so historic investments like this will continue to happen.
Our investment in new and updated schools will create the foundation for a modern learning environment for hundreds of students in Milton and across the province. As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will ensure our children have a safe in person learning environment.
Thank you to our teachers, educators, and staff whose tireless efforts have also helped keep our classrooms healthy and safe.
I am proud to be a part of a government that supports the growth of our community. As a father of three, investments into our children’s future are always a top priority for me. The funding for seven new schools, and three school expansions, means our government is giving our students every tool to achieve their full potential.
