Five Ontario community benefit projects approved

TORONTO — The province is moving forward with five new community benefit projects that aim to help local communities benefit from infrastructure development before, during and after construction.

The projects will employ options designed to bolster local communities during the development of major new public infrastructure, including employment and training opportunities, environmental protections, poverty reduction measures and small business supports, states a release.

The projects are the Finch West Light Rail Transit (LRT) line in Toronto; West Park Healthcare Centre in Toronto; Halton Region Consolidated Courthouse in Oakville; the reconstruction of the Macdonald Block government complex in Toronto; and the Thunder Bay Correctional Complex.

These projects are the next step toward Ontario’s commitment to have all major public infrastructure projects comply with a community benefits framework by 2020, the release indicates.
