I am pleased to advise you that your Investment Plan for Additional Mental Health and Addictions Funding has been approved with an allocation of $280,000.00. Your allocation has been entered into the Transfer Payment Ontario (TPON) system.

Given the pressing need to support vulnerable residents living with mental health and/or addictions issues during the pandemic, all funding must be spent by March 31, 2021.

Please note that the final report back for this initiative is due by May 31, 2021.

As the Service Manager, you are required to keep the contents and details of this letter confidential. This may include but is not limited to the use of in-camera council meetings and protection of this information in and the approvals resulting from this letter. The province will co-ordinate any official announcement of this funding and will notify the Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board in advance.
