Supporting the Expansion of Postsecondary Education and Long-Term Care in Milton

Milton is one of the fastest-growing areas in Canada and its population is expected to more than double by 2031.

To meet growing demands for access to post-secondary education and long-term care beds, the PC government is getting shovels in the ground faster. Milton will now be home to two new postsecondary campuses and a long-term care facility.

Conestoga College and Wilfrid Laurier University are partnering together to build a new campus in Milton that will be able to accommodate approximately 6,700 students. This includes approximately 3,750 students for Conestoga College and approximately 2,940 students for Wilfrid Laurier University.

These new campuses will bring Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) programs to prepare students with the skills, training and hands-on experience they need to succeed in their careers.

“Our government continues to take strong actions that support our community of Milton,” said Parm Gill, MPP for Milton. “By facilitating the approval of the development of two post-secondary campuses along with a new long-term care home, the Milton Education Village will soon be a place where education, research, business and community services succeed.”

The new development of Schlegel Villages Milton is another example of the government’s plan to accelerate the construction of much-needed long-term care projects, and create a 21st century long-term care sector that is truly resident-centred and provides the highest quality of care for our most vulnerable people, when and where they need it.

The Schlegel Villages Milton long-term care home, expected to open in late 2023, will provide 192 new, modern, safe, comfortable long-term care spaces in Milton. This new development moves the government a step closer to delivering 30,000 much-needed long-term care spaces over ten years.
