Newsletter June 22

An important step forward this week, as Youth Opportunities Unlimited unveiled the site of London’s Housing First emergency shelter for youth.

The site at 585 Clark Rd., when complete, will provide short term emergency housing for youth in our community alongside the support services needed to build a better future. This is an initiative supported by the City of London, a massive thank you to everyone who has worked to make this a reality.

This is more than a roof over someone’s head, it’s a safe place to learn, grow and thrive.

Elsewhere, the City of London ran through the Annual Emergency Exercise at our Emergency Operations Centre.

All partners worked seamlessly alongside each other through a drill train derailment. While we hope we never have to do this, it is so imperative for all community partners to be prepared.

Thank you to all City of London staff, London Police, the London Fire Department, London Hydro, CP Rail, LHSC, LTC, MLHU, The Upper Thames Conservation Authority and our EMS partners for always being at the ready and protecting us day in and day out.

Next weekend, we celebrate Canada Day. I hope you will enjoy one of the many celebrations in our great City.

Sincerely,
