News from Queen's ParkSupporting Urban Aboriginal Health, Culture and Economic Growth
Ontario is moving forward on a historic project that will create more economic opportunities and improve the quality of life for urban Aboriginal Peoples.
The province is transferring a section of land on the site of the Pan Am and Parapan Am Games Athletes' Village to Anishnawbe Health Toronto where dynamic, world-class Aboriginal community health and cultural centres will be built following the Games.
The new Aboriginal Community Health Centre will provide access to traditional Aboriginal and modern health services. Working in partnership with the Ontario government, the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, Aboriginal groups, and other public sector organizations, the Aboriginal community cultural hub could include spaces for education, social enterprises and the performing arts.
Infrastructure is part of the government's economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow. The comprehensive plan and its six priorities focus on Ontario's greatest strengths - its people and strategic partnerships.
