Minister Fullerton's visit brings good news for CTC

My colleague, Dr. Merrilee Fullerton, the Minister of Children, Community and Social Services visited the Bay of Quinte Aug. 10 to share news of our 2021 Budget commitment of an additional $240 million for treatment of children with special needs.  That's $60 million a year over four years for service providers like the Quinte Children's Treatment Centre at QHC.  Specifically, the local CTC will receive a $1.1 million more annually over the next four years (A 22-per-cent increase in their funding, the first of its kind in recent memory).

After our tour, Minister Fullerton and I headed over to the Quinte Field of Ability for an afternoon of fun with Quinte Challenger Baseball players.
