TORONTO, O.N. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today, August 26, that the Federal Government will be providing up to $2 billion in support for provinces and territories through the Safe Return to Class Fund.

According to Trudeau, this support will provide the complementary funding provinces and territories need, as they work alongside local school boards to ensure the safety of students and staff members throughout the school year.

The Fund will help provinces and territories by supporting adapted learning spaces, improved air ventilation, increased hand sanitation and hygiene, and purchases of personal protective equipment and cleaning supplies.
