Manitoulin-Espanola DSB part of ambulance services funding freeze – Manitoulin Expositor

ESPANOLA – The Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board (DSB) has been given the news by the province that funding for ambulance services across the province will be frozen again this year.

“Basically, the province has announced that funding is being frozen by the province at 2018 funding levels. The problem is that this was based on the 2017 budget, so the funding freeze has now been in place for two years,” said Fern Dominelli, CAO of the DSB on Monday. “So we are 27 months behind in funding.”

“We have not received funding letters from the province concerning First Nations and TWOMO funding. We don’t know exactly what is going to happen without details,” said Mr. Dominelli.
