Ontario is providing opportunities for 22,000 children and youth in priority neighbourhoods to participate in fun, safe and supervised activities after school, which help build confidence and support student success and wellbeing.
Harinder Malhi, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, was at the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club’s Main Clubhouse today to announce that the province is renewing funding for its After School Program. About 235 children and youth take part in the Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club’s program at the Main Clubhouse every school day.
This year, more than 22,000 children and youth will benefit from the funding at over 400 locations across the province. This funding will go toward quality programs to help children and youth get active, learn about healthy habits, gain confidence and achieve more in school.
Investing in sport, recreation and active living in communities across the province is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
