File:Ontario-wordmark.svgOntario is upgrading energy efficiency of social housing and improving living conditions for residents while fighting climate change through a new program from the Green Ontario Fund, a non-profit provincial agency funded by proceeds from the province’s cap on pollution and carbon market.

Chris Ballard, Minister of the Environment and Climate Change, was joined today by Peter Milczyn, Minister of Housing and Parminder Sandhu, Green Ontario Fund board chair, to announce the launch of the GreenON Social Housing program.

Along with existing provincial programs designed for larger social housing buildings, this new program will help improve the energy efficiency of social housing apartment buildings with fewer than 100 units across the province.

Improvements will include upgrades to energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, windows, lighting and insulation. These renovations will also improve the living conditions for low-income and vulnerable tenants and the long-term sustainability of buildings.
