Newsletter March 2

The federal budget, released this week, has some funding highlights that align with London’s priorities.

There are a number initiatives related to improving outcomes for Indigenous peoples, including $2-billion for an Indigenous Skills and Employment Training Program and $1.8-billion over five years to support water/wastewater infrastructure in Indigenous communities, which is great news for our surrounding First Nations.

The federal government earmarked $230-million to help combat the opioid crisis. This includes one-time emergency funding of $150-million for projects that improve access to evidence-based treatment services.

Mayors from across Canada are still closely watching how the National Housing Strategy funding, $40-billion, will be allocated. We have a housing crisis not just here in London, but across the country.

We will continue to advocate for our fair share of the $180-billion in infrastructure funding, as we move forward with London’s rapid transit plans.

Next week marks Social Work Week, March 5-11. You can check out a full list of events here.

Sincerely,
