The Ontario government is investing $3.12 million in capital funding to help the University of Windsor make critical repairs and upgrades.

“The world-class education students receive at our postsecondary institutions is critical to the future of Ontario, our economy, and the prosperity of our people, said Ross Romano, Minister of Colleges and Universities. “That is why our Government is proud to commit increased annual funding to the University of Windsor to renew and modernize their facilities.”

This funding will help the University address the ongoing need for the maintenance, renovation and modernization of existing facilities. The 2020-21 FRP funding for the University of Windsor represents nearly a 90% increase in funding compared to last year.

This investment will assist the University in addressing their deferred maintenance backlog, undertaking critical repairs, modernizing classrooms, upgrading technology and improving their environmental sustainability.

“The University of Windsor welcomes this timely announcement from the Ontario government and thanks Minister Romano for this important funding contribution,” said Rob Gordon, University of Windsor President and Vice-Chancellor. “Like all post-secondary institutions, it is critical that we continue to place an emphasis on upgrades to our existing facilities. Providing a world-class education depends on both the best possible instruction and ensuring the physical environment for that learning encourages collaboration and innovation.”
