Numerous agencies providing services to children and youth in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry gathered on Wednesday to brief MPPs Jim Wilson and Jim McDonell regarding their programs and ways the provincial government can assist them in delivering those services efficiently and broadly.
“Our young people are the future of this province,” said Ontario PC Interim Leader Jim Wilson. “Today, we heard from people committed to making this the best place in Canada to grow, and to start a career.”
The province offers support programs in fields such as health, skills training, mental health support, and education for children and youth in Ontario.
“We must focus our resources on delivering the best opportunities for our local children and youth” – MPP McDonell commented. “Directing provincial funding wisely in helping young Ontarians achieve their full potential will enhance their futures and help our province rebuild its competitiveness and attractiveness to families. Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry is a wonderful place to call home – the community’s generous spirit and volunteer resources are a significant factor in this. Today’s consultation highlighted the importance of consistent and reliable provincial funding, and for the government to tailor programs to meet local needs. We will bring their concerns to Queen’s Park and continue working for all residents of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.”
