NEWS RELEASE Province Seeking Public Feedback on Ontario Place Redevelopment

Input will be critical to support the planning and development of the site

August 30, 2021
Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries

 

TORONTO — As the Ontario government proceeds with the revitalization of Ontario Place into a world-class, year-round destination, the province is launching the next phase of engagement, which will include both an online survey and virtual public information sessions. Starting today, all Ontarians will have the opportunity to share their views on how they would like to experience a redeveloped Ontario Place.

“Ontario Place holds a special place in the hearts and minds of Ontarians for the many family-friendly events and activities that have been enjoyed by millions over the past 50 years,” said Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries. “That’s why our government is launching a provincewide digital engagement process – we want to hear how Ontarians see themselves using a redeveloped Ontario Place and what features are important to them.”

The public survey is available online through Ontario.ca/OntarioPlace, along with information about the Ontario Place site and the redevelopment process, including the three successful participants. The survey will be open for nine weeks, closing in late October.

In addition to the survey, there will be two provincewide virtual public information sessions on October 13 and 27, which will provide additional opportunities for the public to learn about the planned redevelopment and provide input. More information about the virtual sessions, including how to pre-register, is available through Ontario.ca/OntarioPlace.

As the project continues, Mark Saunders, Special Advisor for Ontario Place, will provide strategic, expert advice to the Premier and Minister MacLeod, and support them in discussions with key collaborators, such as the City of Toronto and Indigenous communities, to make this vision a reality and to guide collaboration and future development of the Ontario Place and Exhibition Place sites. The ministry is engaging with Indigenous communities and will continue to seek their input and ensure their rights and interests are respected.

“When Ontario Place opened in 1971, it was designed to reflect all that we, as Ontarians, embodied: our heritage, our diversity, our creativity and our future potential. Now, as we move forward with the redevelopment of the site, the people of Ontario have several upcoming opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas for a modern Ontario Place,” said Minister MacLeod. “A redeveloped Ontario Place will be a true reflection of our diversity and multiculturalism, and will show respect for the rich traditions, cultures and heritage of First Nation, Inuit, and Métis peoples, while at the same time showcasing Ontario as the world in one province. Ensuring the public has the opportunity to participate in that process is critical for making our vision a reality.”

 

Quick Facts

  • The Ontario Place site is a unique waterfront property, made up of approximately 155 acres of land and water, and served as an iconic cultural and tourism destination for all Ontarians between 1971 and 2012.

  • On July 30, 2021, the Ontario Government announced details of its plan to revitalize Ontario Place into a world-class destination following a Call for Development process.

  • In fall 2021, public consultations will begin on various technical aspects of the redevelopment project, including the site-wide Class Environmental Assessment, heritage evaluation, public realm design and development, planning and development, and site servicing. Public consultations are expected to continue throughout 2022 and 2023.

  • Currently, more than one million people visit Ontario Place every year.

  • A redeveloped Ontario Place will not include casinos or condos and the land will not be sold.

  • Key heritage and recreational features of the site will be retained and integrated into the redevelopment, including the Cinesphere, the pod complex, the marina, Trillium Park and the William G. Davis Trail.

  • Ontario Place will remain open to the public 365 days a year, with free public access and a waterfront that can be enjoyed by all.

Media Release - August 26, 2021 - Southwestern Public Health to host multiple vaccine pop-up clinics at local schools

Media Release
August 26, 2021 Southwestern Public Health to host multiple vaccine pop-up clinics at local schools

Southwestern Public Health is hosting multiple COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinics to encourage a healthy start to the school year.

As of August 25, 66% of individuals aged 12-19 have been vaccinated with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, and only 54% have been fully vaccinated. With less than two weeks remaining before the start of school, increasing these rates is critical for preventing COVID-related absences from in-class learning.

“We can all agree that students belong in the classroom. We have the opportunity to do as much as we can to ensure that happens, and help prevent another interrupted year,” says Dr. Joyce Lock, Medical Officer of Health.
While the health unit hopes to make getting a vaccine easy for those headed back to school on September 7th, each of these clinics is open to any eligible residents aged 12 or older in Elgin County, Oxford County, and the City of St. Thomas for first or second doses. Appointments are not required.
Upcoming school-based pop-up clinics include:

  • Huron Park Secondary School, August 30 from 1-4p.m. (Woodstock)
  • West Elgin Secondary School, September 2 from 1-4 p.m. (West Lorne)
  • Emily Stowe Public School, September 3 from 1-4 p.m. (Norwich)

Additional pop-up clinics may be added over the coming days. For a full list of pop-up clinics in Elgin County, Oxford County, and the City of St. Thomas visit www.swpubichealth.ca/eligibility#vaccinepopup. Appointments can also be booked online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca at Southwestern Public Health’s mass vaccination clinics in St. Thomas and Woodstock.

Youth who have questions regarding COVID-19 vaccinations are encouraged to speak with their primary care provider or visit www.KidsHealthFirst.ca for credible answers to common questions.

Media Release - August 20, 2021 - Southwestern Public Health Moving St. Thomas Vaccination Clinic

Media Release
August 20, 2021
Southwestern Public Health Moving St. Thomas Vaccination Clinic
Following the administration of 94,000 doses at the site, the large space is no longer needed.

Six months after it opened, the COVID-19 Mass Immunization Clinic in St. Thomas will be scaled back in size and moved to the health unit’s 1230 Talbot Street location. The Memorial Arena location will administer its final vaccine on the afternoon of Friday September 10 and the 1230 Talbot Street location will open the morning of Monday September 13.

Since its March launch, more than 94,000 doses of vaccine have been administered at Memorial Arena. The move to a smaller location signals the success of the region’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign. More than 80% of eligible residents in St. Thomas have been vaccinated against COVID-19 with at least one dose. Such a large-scale clinic is no longer required.

“This milestone – the scaling back of our St. Thomas Mass Immunization Clinics – is a shared success of our community. Our municipalities, community partners, volunteers, service clubs, primary care physicians and paramedics, and of course the clinic staff made this happen together. This success also belongs to the community members who rolled up their sleeves and got vaccinated when their turn came. You were a part of this life saving effort,” says Jaime Fletcher, Program Manager overseeing the COVID-19 Vaccination Task Force.

The 1230 Talbot Street location is an on-demand stop with city of St. Thomas transit, will serve as a walk-in vaccination site serving all eligible community members seeking first or second doses of a COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments also available online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca. The new hours of operation will be 9am – noon and 1pm until 4pm, Monday through Friday. Any remaining first or second doses scheduled at Memorial in September or October will be rescheduled to Talbot Street. Clients can anticipate a phone call, email, or text message from public health with the new time and location of their appointment.

Oxford County residents can anticipate a similar reduction in the size of the Woodstock clinic, however the location currently remains unchanged. The Tillsonburg Mass Immunization Clinic is scheduled to close end of day Friday August 27, 2021.
