Lambton receives $20 M from ON, Canada for new health education centre

June 26, 2015

The governments of Canada and Ontario have announced that they will each contribute $10 M to the creation of a Centre for Health Education and Sustainable Care (CHESC) at Lambton College. The funds will come from the Small Communities Fund, designed to support priority public infrastructure projects in communities with fewer than 100,000 residents. The CHESC will provide space for research and learning, with multi-functional laboratories, interactive learning studios, and large meeting spaces. Lambton County has committed an additional $5 M to the centre; the rest will be raised by the college through its Envision Tomorrow capital campaign. Construction is expected to begin in 2016.
