The Federal Government together with the Province are funding upgrades to ventilation systems in 32 schools and health-care facilities across Manitoba.
The Federal Government together with the Province of Manitoba has announced a joint investment of more than $13.1 million to upgrade ventilation systems in 32 schools and health-care facilities across Manitoba. (the feds are investing $10.4M in these projects, with the provincial government adding $2.7M)
In Winnipeg, 20 schools and health-care facilities will see upgrades. Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba’s provincial tertiary centre for trauma, transplants, burns, neurosciences, complex cancer care and pediatric care, will see upgrades to portions of the building’s HVAC control systems and replace portions of its existing HVAC system.
The investment will also allow for replacement of equipment used to manage the facility’s ability to maintain appropriate temperature conditions through all seasons.
At the Saul & Claribel Simkin Centre, a not-for-profit, government-funded facility that honours Jewish values and traditions while welcoming seniors of all backgrounds, this investment will enable the replacement of the kitchen condensing unit–creating a more comfortable environment for residents and staff alike.
Further, through this investment, the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba’s Brandon location, which provides Manitobans with a range of services and supports relating to substance abuse and problem gambling, will see upgrades to the building’s HVAC system.
