On Sunday, David Piccini, MPP for Northumberland – Peterborough South, announced that the Ontario government has given approval of the Capital Program application for the site of Ed’s House Northumberland Hospice Care Centre. The contract for the building has been awarded and development of the hospice care centre is able to move forward.

Community Care Northumberland will now be allowed to award the building contract and begin construction this spring.
