Ontario’s vaccine rollout is well underway

I hope everyone has been keeping safe. Spring is right around the corner and I am happy to say that Ontario has started administering COVID-19 vaccines.

633 Coronation Application Withdrawn

I am pleased to inform you that on February 17, the proponent notified the Ministry of Environment, Conservation, & Parks of their wish to withdraw their Environmental Compliance Approval (ECA) of the proposed Coronation Organics Processing Centre and Anaerobic Digester. As a result of the gaps in municipal zoning approvals, the ministry has stated that the proponent must work with the City of Toronto to address the zoning challenges before continuing with an ECA application.

Since last March, my office and I have been fighting to ensure that the voices of my constituents are heard. Constituents asked for an extension of the online consultation on the Environmental Registry and my office was able to get this extension, allowing time for residents in the area to make their voices heard.

I want to thank all the residents and community organizations who approached me with their concerns on this project and advocated for their community.

Book Your Vaccination

Our government has launched a provincial booking system and customer service desk to support COVID-19 vaccination appointment bookings at mass immunization clinics. If you are 75 years and older you can book your vaccine now.

Make an appointment at ontario.ca/bookvaccine, where you will be guided to the provincial booking system or to your local public health unit.

Individuals who require assistance with booking can call the Provincial Vaccine Information Line at 1-888-999-6488. If you still have a red and white health card, please call that number.

As vaccine supply increases, our government has expanded the delivery channels available to administer COVID-19 vaccines to include pharmacies and primary care settings. Over 325 pharmacies are offering the AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD vaccine to people 60+ by appointment only. Those pharmacies in our riding are listed here.

My office and I are always here to help. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out via email at vijay.thanigasalam@pc.ola.org or call 416-283-8448.
