Ontario Investing in New French-language School in Oakville

Province Supporting Local Students and Families

École secondaire Gaétan-Gervais is a new French-language school in Oakville. The provincial investment in the Conseil scolaire Viamonde school board will provide improved facilities and enhanced learning opportunities for 392 students in Oakville in grades 7 to 12.

Ontario is providing school boards across the province with more than $11 billion to help build new schools in areas of high growth, improve the condition of existing schools and invest in projects to reduce surplus space through school consolidations.

Giving students the best possible learning environment is part of the government’s plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario’s history, creating a dynamic, innovative environment where business thrives, and building a secure savings plan.
