Lambton seeks $5 million from county for health education centre

February 4, 2014

Lambton College is seeking $5 million in funding from the county to build its Centre of Health Education and Sustainable Care, the Sarnia Observer reports. Lambton representatives will present the college’s proposal for a $30-million building at a council meeting this week. The 60,000-square-foot facility would house 1,000 health sciences students, over half of whom are from Sarnia-Lambton. It would also be the first new free-standing building to be constructed on the main campus since 1972. Lambton estimates that it will receive $21.5 million from the provincial and federal governments for the centre; a total of $3.5 million will be pulled from the college reserves. Sarnia Observer
