  • The Ontario Government is planning to relocate the Ontario Science Centre to Ontario Place. “The business case confirms that the relocation will save Ontario taxpayers $257 million over a 50-year period when compared to the cost of remaining at the current site and will also provide a greater share of space for programming than is the case at the current site. The decision to move the centre was also supported by the Ontario Science Centre board, which voted in favour of the move in April 2023.”
  • The Hornepayne School will receive lighting upgrades. The upgrades were approved as part of 2023-2024 Algoma District School Board Capital Projects
