Ontario seeking bids for reconstruction of Haiti schools
Ontario says it will be rebuilding three schools destroyed in January's Haiti earthquake.
The provincial government is seeking bids for the reconstruction of the schools in Port-au-Prince. “The schools will meet strict standards to make them more resilient to future earthquakes,” the province said.
Construction will begin in early 2011 and Haitian students should be back in the classrooms in 2012, the province said.
Fifty-one Haitian students displaced by the earthquake have travelled to Ontario to attend school.
