The Ontario government is providing up to $1,409,419 to help improve the delivery of critical programs and services in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry.

The funding is being delivered through the Municipal Modernization Program and will support the Township of North Dundas Council Meeting Digitization.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the need to deliver programming more efficiently so that people can access the services they need, when they need them,”said Jim McDonell, MPP for Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry.

“These projects will ensure that our community will benefit from innovative and streamlined solutions in a way that will positively impact services and save taxpayers’ dollars.”

Ontario is providing up to $24 million to support the modernization of 224 small and rural municipalities across the province. A total of 254 projects will receive funding under Intake 2 of Ontario’ Municipal Modernization Program.

Municipalities will use the funding to find efficiencies and implement a wide range of initiatives to digitize, streamline and/or integrate programs and services with neighbouring communities. The funding will also help municipalities administer the cost saving measures in time for the 2022 municipal budget cycle.
