DDSB gets green light to tender for new Oshawa school

The Ontario government has provided the Durham District School Board (DDSB) with approval to issue the tender for the new North Oshawa Secondary School.

This is supported by an investment of $72.3 million provided by the Ministry of Education, which includes additional funding of $25.9 million, said a provincial statement.

Once completed, this project will deliver 1,387 secondary spaces for local families. The investment is part of Ontario’s commitment to providing about $16 billion to support school construction, repair, and renewal over 10 years. Since 2018, the government has approved or supported the development of over 300 school-related projects including childcare, of which more than 100 are actively under construction, it said.

“The funding for a new North Oshawa Secondary School in Oshawa is great news for our growing community to help meet the demands of increased student enrollment in this area of Durham Region,” said Todd McCarthy, MPP for Durham. “Students attending the new North Oshawa Secondary school will benefit from new state-of-the-art facilities and receive the hands-on learning setting them up for success in the job market of tomorrow.”

“We are determined to build schools and expansions faster, part of our commitment to modernize schools in fast growing communities,” said Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education. “We are proud to deliver a new, state-of-the-art North Oshawa Secondary School for Oshawa families, along with increasing funding, staffing and a back-to-basics focus on reading, writing and math skills to help ensure students graduate with confidence that they can succeed in good-paying careers.”

North Oshawa Secondary School will be located at Windfields Farm Drive East and Bridle Road South in Oshawa.
