The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board has benefited from an investment of $17.8 million for ventilation improvements and has over 900 HEPA filter units in place. In addition the government is investing up to $1 billion to create up to 30,000 new child care spaces in schools over five years. Over the next ten years, the Ontario government will spend $14 billion in capital grants, including allocating $550 million in 2020-21 for new schools, additions, and major renovations.
