The Limestone District School Board has completed several school upgrades as part of the COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream – Education Related Projects a part of Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program.

Funded and approved by Infrastructure Canada and the Government of Ontario, eligible projects are intended to help school boards promote the health and safety of students and staff by improving facility condition, enhancing physical distancing, facilitating distance learning, and assisting in alleviating the COVID-19 related pressures.

Limestone received more than $5.1 million for projects at 25 schools. These projects included HVAC replacement and installation in several indoor and rooftop locations to address air quality issues; classroom unit ventilators; complete ventilation study; the replacement of exterior doors to enhance physical distancing and introduce touchless features; the replacement of hot water boilers; and upgraded security systems.

In total, the CVRIS-EDU projects will support up to $656 million in projects in school boards across Ontario. Eligible expenditures under the program are those that will be incurred by school boards between February 2021 and December 31, 2021 and have been approved by the federal government and Ministry of Education.
