SPACE - Saving Public Access to Community Space Everywhere

This report looks at the Ontario government's Community Use of Schools (CUS) program following its implementation in 1997. It looks particularly at the impact of a CUS funding freeze over the past three years, along with other barriers that restrict community access to public spaces. It presents key findings and recommendations for governing bodies at the provincial, municipal and school board level on how to encourage fair and equitable access to community space and develop community hubs.
