Ontario Opens New Children’s Centre in Cobourg
August 28, 2017 – Cobourg, Ontario
Ontario is improving access to services for children and youth with special needs, with the opening of a new, modern, and centrally located Five Counties Children’s Centre in Cobourg.
Minister of Children and Youth Services Michael Coteau and Lou Rinaldi, MPP for Northumberland – Quinte West, officially opened the new location at 800 Division St. in Cobourg this morning.
Five Counties offers a range of services for children and youth, including social work, audiology, and therapeutic recreation and has additional branches Peterborough, Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton and Northumberland counties.
The new location, which relocates two older Five Counties Children’s Centre branches into a single, new and central location, has larger and more accessible treatment spaces, and provides a modern facility for children, youth, and families to access the care they need.
Supporting children and youth with special needs and helping them reach their full potential is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
