Posted on 01/06/2022
On Dec. 13, 2021, Jill Dunlop, MPP for Simcoe North, announced that the Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) will receive capital funding for a new elementary school in Orillia.

“This announcement is great news for our board and the City of Orillia,” says John Dance, Director of Education. “We continue to put forward strong business cases for new schools and expansions, and have been fortunate to receive funding for numerous capital priorities in recent years. We appreciate that the Government of Ontario has recognized this need in Orillia, and look forward to working with city staff and community partners on the development of the new school.”

The new school is being built to balance enrolment in the western part of Orillia with the rural schools that surround it, and to accommodate growth occurring in Orillia. Funding for the new elementary school totals $9,026,347.
