Algonquin receives $35 million for trades building

The Ontario government has handed Algonquin College the $35 million it needs to build a state-of-the-art training centre devoted to the skilled trades - the first phase in a proposed $136-million campus expansion.

Premier Dalton McGuinty, who made skills training a centrepiece of his government's March budget, made the long-awaited announcement Monday.

"This is the single largest investment Ontarians have made in Algonquin College, and we're proud to do so," Mr. McGuinty said during a visit to the college.
