October 10, 2017

Ontario is providing new funding for repairs and retrofits to social housing in York Region, in order to improve living conditions and fight climate change. This investment is part of Ontario's Climate Change Action Plan and is funded by proceeds from the province's carbon market.

Chris Ballard, MPP for Newmarket-Aurora, was at Trinity Glen Housing Corporation in Newmarket today to make the announcement. York Region will receive up to $17.3 million for repairs and retrofits to social housing apartment buildings over five years, contingent on carbon market proceeds.

The investment will help improve the lives of low-income and vulnerable tenants in York Region with upgrades to social housing buildings such as new energy efficient heating, improved insulation, and window replacements.

Proceeds from Ontario's carbon market must by law be invested into programs that help households and businesses reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money on energy costs. Programs include home energy retrofits, public transit, social housing retrofits, and electric vehicle incentives and infrastructure.

Ensuring everyone in Ontario has a safe and affordable place to call home is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.

“Improving the day to day lives of low income and vulnerable residents in York Region, while reducing our carbon footprint is part of our government’s Climate Change Action Plan. Investing proceeds from Ontario’s carbon market into home energy retrofits, public transit and social housing retrofits ensures everyone has a safe and affordable place to call home.”

Through this investment, social housing facilities in our Region can make important upgrades to their infrastructure to maintain and preserve the life of the buildings so residents who live in these facilities may continue to have a safe place to call home.”
