Backgrounder: Canada and Ontario invest in school infrastructure to respond to the impacts of COVID-19

Canada and Ontario invest in school infrastructure to respond to the impacts
of COVID-19

Joint federal and provincial funding through the Investing in Canada Plan will support over 9,800 projects at almost 3,900 schools and co-located childcare facilities across 74 school boards throughout Ontario.

This funding will have a positive impact on protecting thousands of students, teachers, and staff from COVID-19 by providing a safe learning environment, improved air quality, heating, ventilation, and air cooling systems.

The Government of Canada is investing $525.2 million towards these projects through the COVID-19 Resilience Stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The Government of Ontario is contributing more than $131.3 million to the projects.

This funding includes:

  • Almost $450 million for HVAC upgrades and improvements to air quality;
  • Up to $65 million to support physical distancing for students and staff;
  • Up to $60 million will be invested in technology to help facilitate remote learning; and
  • Up to $80 million will go towards supporting health and safety initiatives such as installing handwashing stations or touchless faucets and soap dispensers.
