COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream

The Ministry of Education has supported school boards across Ontario with $656M to support the healthy return of students and staff to classrooms. The OCSB is an appreciative recipient of a portion of this funding which has been provided through the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream – Education Related Projects (CVRIS-EDU).

Nearly $14M provided by the fund has been used to improve over 38 OCSB facilities. These improvements include:

  • Promoting occupant health and safety – Such as adding water bottle stations
  • Improving facility conditions – Such as ventilation and air quality improvements.
  • Enhancing Physical Distancing – Such as adding temporary classroom space, new washrooms, and gym dividers.

The CVRIS-EDU funding is a federal and provincial program designed to help school boards promote occupant health and safety, improve facility conditions (e.g. optimize air quality), enhance physical distancing, and facilitate distance learning. It is maintained through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).
