Additional Long-Term Care Funding an Advocacy Win for the City of Timmins 
The Ontario government announced today additional funding for long-term care projects that will directly benefit the City’s redevelopment plans for the Golden Manor. This is an advocacy win for the City of Timmins after concerns were raised about rising construction costs and long-term borrowing interest rates.

“Our provincial partners have listened to our concerns about the dramatic increases in the cost of construction,” says Mayor Michelle Boileau. “They have recognized that our community needs additional support to realize the vision of a modern and safe long-term care facility.”

Redevelopment of the Golden Manor follows the Ontario government’s commitment to build more than 30,000 net new beds by 2028 and upgrade and modernize current long-term care infrastructure. Plans to redevelop the current 177-bed facility would see the Golden Manor upgraded with an additional 15 beds with more space for programs, activities, and integration of infection prevention and control features.

“Following the recent municipal election, a new board of management has been appointed for the Golden Manor,” adds Mayor Boileau. “We look forward to providing leadership on this project as it is a priority for the City of Timmins and part of planning for our future.”
