Good Places To Learn

Backgrounder

Ministry of Education

Schools are more than just buildings - they're hubs of our communities. That's why the McGuinty government has been investing in Ontario's schools through its $4.8 billion Good Places to Learn (GPL) initiative to repair, rebuild and expand schools across the province.

To date, almost 12,000 renewal projects are underway or completed in schools across the province. Examples of school improvements include replacing roofs, windows and boilers. Since 2003, more than 200 new schools have been opened or are under construction thanks to McGuinty government investments, with plans for an additional 100 schools underway.

Learn more about how Good Places to Learn is renewing Ontario's schools.
