The government of Ontario has launched a new program that aims to make it easier for community partners to offer health, social, cultural, recreational and other services for local residents in one spot.

More Information: 

Through this program, the province aims to help hold properties, such as schools, hospitals or provincial buildings that are no longer in use or have been deemed surplus, for up to 18 months. This is meant to give municipalities, organizations and Indigenous communities crucially needed time to find partners, complete a business plan and secure the right funding to redevelop the property into a community hub.

Community partners can apply for this program online starting July 4, 2017 until October 16, 2017.
