Barrie to give $5 million to Georgian College health building

March 3, 2009

On Monday evening, Barrie city councillors gave initial approval to contribute $5 million towards Georgian College's proposed $65-million centre for health and wellness. The 165,000-square-foot facility would have 34 labs and clinics, as well as 12 classrooms. College officials say the centre, which would bring another 3,000 students to the Barrie campus, would help address the healthcare worker shortage in the area. Barrie Examiner
