Province’s largest community-based children’s treatment centre to celebrate construction of new facility

February 18, 2016
ErinoakKids, the largest of Ontario’s 20 community-based children’s treatment centres, will celebrate the start of construction of a new facility in Oakville at a ceremonial event on Feb. 19.

Construction of the new space, a first in more than 40 years for ErinoakKids, will help meet the increasing demand for services for children with disabilities and special needs. The new facility is part of a multi-site project supported by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services that will replace 11 outgrown facilities with three new buildings – one in Oakville, another in Mississauga and a third in Brampton. The sites will bring therapy, medical and support services under one roof for children with disabilities and special needs.

            10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
WHERE: The Oakville Conference Centre
