TORONTO—The Province of Ontario, the federal government and York University have announced they are teaming up to invest $113 million in three construction projects at the university.
Steven Del Duca, Ontario’s minister of transportation and the MPP for Vaughan, was joined by Judy Sgro, MP for Humber River-Black Creek, at York University Feb. 17 to announce funding for the Major Science Building Renewal Project, the Central Utilities and Co-Generation Upgrade Project and the Schulich School of Business Expansion.
Work will include modernizing four major science research buildings at the Keele and Glendon campuses, replacing turbines and boilers and building an addition to the Schulich School of Business. Site work and demolition has already started. Of the $113 million overall cost, nearly $41 million comes from Canada’s Strategic Investment Fund, $6.6 million from Ontario and more than $65 million from York University.
