THUNDER BAY – NEWS – On behalf of Deputy Premier and Minister of Health Sylvia Jones, Thunder Bay-Atikokan MPP Kevin Holland unveiled $45,060 for the Alzheimer’s Society of Thunder Bay as part of the Plan to Stay Open: Health System and Recovery.
“I am pleased to see this funding come to Northwestern Ontario,” said MPP Holland. “The funds will allow the society to support an additional 500 caregivers in our region.
