Cornwall, Ontario – The Ontario Trillium Foundation has awarded a $106,800 Capital Grant to the Anglican Diocese of Ottawa for Centre 105-Cornwall’s Drop-in Day program. Announced on Friday by local MPP Nolan Quinn, the funding will facilitate the construction of two gender-inclusive, accessible washrooms and a comprehensive shower facility at the Centre. These improvements aim to enhance health, hygiene, and self-esteem among Cornwall’s vulnerable citizens.

“I am proud that our government is investing in resources for our community’s most vulnerable individuals. Organizations such as Centre 105 are the pillars of our community,” said Nolan Quinn, MPP for Stormont—Dundas—South Glengarry.

Taylor Seguin, the Executive Director of Centre 105, expressed immense gratitude for the support. “This grant allows us to construct facilities critically needed in our community, significantly improving the social space utilized by many vulnerable individuals,” Seguin noted.

Centre 105 offers essential services including a healthy breakfast, laundry facilities, and professional health and housing support, contributing to a more inclusive and supportive community environment.
