Premier Doug Ford visited Dundalk and Alliston on Monday, November 15.
Premier Ford, and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker, met with healthcare works in Dundalk, and visited the future site of the new South East Grey Community Health Centre. Premier Ford joined with MPP Walker to announce that the government is investing $275,000 to support the planning of South East Grey Community Health Centre’s (SEGCHC) new Dundalk community health centre. The grant will help the new community health centre project move ahead.
“We are helping communities meet their unique health care needs,” said Premier Ford. “Our government isn’t waiting. We’re getting shovels in the ground.”
The proposal would see a new 14,000 – 15,000 square foot clinic built in Dundalk. The clinic is planned to provide primary care, mental health, social and home care services. Last year, the project received a $1 million donation from FLATO Developments.
“This is great news for our community. I’m thrilled the Premier took the time to personally deliver this exciting news,” said Walker. “I’m looking forward to this project taking the next steps, and the positive impacts this new facility will have on the healthcare of the people we serve in Southgate and the surrounding area.”
Prior to the official announcement, Premier Ford toured the current health clinic and met with staff of the facility. Later, he was joined by officials from the Township of Southgate, SEGCHC, FLATO and community members to see the site of the new clinic.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a small donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
