Ontario and North Grenville Moving Forward to Transform Kemptville Campus

Ontario and the municipality of North Grenville are partnering to transform the former Kemptville campus of the University of Guelph into an education and community hub.

The agreement will allow for the transformation of the majority of the Kemptville campus - a site where the University of Guelph previously delivered agricultural programming - into an education and community hub that focuses on: education and training, health and wellness and economic development emphasizing climate change resiliency and low carbon innovation.

As a hub that will offer a range of services for the community, the former campus will continue to deliver economic benefits over the long term. The transfer fulfills Ontario's commitment to find innovative and sustainable solutions that help the municipality meet the local needs of the community.

Supporting communities in the renewal of public spaces is part of Ontario's plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change that includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
