ONTARIO PROVIDES ADDITIONAL FUNDING TO SUPPORT MUNICIPALITIES AND URBAN INDIGENOUS COMMUNITY PARTNERS

Premier Doug Ford announced yesterday that the Ontario government is providing municipalities and urban Indigenous community partners with an additional $150 million to continue to protect vulnerable people from COVID-19 by improving homeless shelters and creating opportunities for longer-term housing.

Ford says the investment more than doubles the funding currently flowing to local municipal service managers and urban Indigenous program administrators through the Social Services Relief Fund.
