The Ontario Government is improving social services facilities for families in Atikokan.
Community Living Atikokan will receive $22,500 through the Ministry of Community and Social Servicesâ€™ (MCSS) Partner Facility Renewal Program, to maintain their facility with upgrades to the roof and eaves troughs â€“ ensuring that important programs and services can continue to be delivered.
This non-profit organization supports people with developmental disabilities in the Town of Atikokan.
Partner Facility Renewal funding investments are provided annually to MCSS by the Ministry of Infrastructure, to help non-profit community agencies improve or maintain their facilities.
Upgrading non-profit agenciesâ€™ facilities is part of the governmentâ€™s plan to invest in services to create a fair society and help people in their everyday lives.
"These investments will allow local agencies to pay for repairs and important renovations, so they can continue to provide high quality services to families in Atikokan. The end result is a better experience for all of our community members who access these facilities."
â€” Bill Mauro, MPP Thunder Bay-Atikokan
"By investing to help agencies keep their facilities in good condition, Ontario is providing better services to people with a developmental disability and families struggling with domestic abuse. Helping people in their everyday lives benefits all communities across the province."
â€” Ted McMeekin, Minister of Community and Social Services.
This funding is part of a $6.5 million investment to help maintain and improve more than 150 sites at over 90 community agencies across the province.
