The government of Ontario released a report yesterday on the progress that it has made establishing and strengthening community hubs. Highlights of the reporting include the government’s progress:
- Increasing the number of potential partners that can buy or lease surplus school property before it is put on the open market
- Investing nearly $90 million to create school spaces for community use and expand child care and family support services
- Simplifying the funding application process and expanding eligibility to allow the integration of multiple health and social services under one roof
According to the report, the province also plans to launch a common registration portal this fall to reduce the administrative burden for transfer payment recipients. The report was prepared by the province’s Community Hubs Framework Advisory Group. You can access a copy here.
