O'Connor Township News
The Township of O’Connor was fortunate this year to receive funding from the Clean Water Wastewater Fund (CWWF), through both the Federal and Provincial governments, to replace several road culverts throughout the Township. This fund covers 50% of the total cost of the project.
To cover the Township’s share of the project we will also be using funds from the Federal Gas Tax Fund (FGT) and the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund (OCIF) to change approximately 60 culverts in our road system.
The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has developed communications material to promote awareness of the change to income thresholds under Seniors Co-Pay Program (SCP) and encourage eligible seniors to apply.
Updated income thresholds:
- Single senior - an income of less than or equal to $19,300; or
- Senior couple - a combined income of less than or equal to $32,000.
- Can save an average of $130 per year in out-of-pocket drug costs
- Pay no annual deductible and a co-payment of up to $2 for each prescription.
