A Milton charitable organization for local families has received an influx of cash from the provincial government.

The Centre canadien pour l’unité de la famille, was given more than $87,000 in funding through the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) Capital grant stream.

“CCF’s mandate is to promote healthy and dignified practices and activities for families in an inclusive environment with a view to strengthening and enriching their quality of life,” said an organization spokesperson.

The announcement came from Milton’s MPP Parm Gill.

“Proud that our government is investing to improve access to facilities, programs, activities, and services,” said Gill. “This funding will enable the organization to better serve the people of Milton and improve existing spaces and support new build projects in our community.”

Provincial funding that is received through the OTF’s capital grant stream improves the infrastructure that Ontarians need to thrive. Whether it’s purchasing equipment, building a new space, or completing renovations, retrofits or repairs, these grants support projects that are having a positive difference, according to Gill.

“Non-profit organizations across Ontario deliver programming that makes a difference – helping people train for new careers, learn new things, or simply connect with those around them,” said Neil Lumsden, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.

“That’s why the capital grant support my ministry is providing is so important. Our government wants to ensure these spaces remain the heart of communities across our province.”
