About the Project

Ontario is working to improve community safety and better support modern policing operations by updating Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) facilities across the province.

Ten new detachments will be constructed, replacing buildings at the end of their useful lifespan. The new detachments will be located in:

  • Huron County Detachment, 325 Albert Street, Clinton
  • Mississauga, 2735 Argentia Road, Mississauga
  • Hawkesbury Detachment, 1425 Cameron Street, Hawkesbury
  • Manitoulin Island Detachment, 54 Boosneck Road, Little Current
  • Marathon Detachment, 101 Peninsula Road, Marathon 
  • West Parry Sound Detachment, 1 North Road, Parry Sound
  • Rainy River District Detachment, 901 Colonization Road West, Fort Frances
  • Moosonee Detachment,  16 Butcher Road, Moosonee  
  • Orillia Detachment, 1 University Avenue
  • Cambridge Detachment, 1360 Hespeler Road, Cambridge*

*In June 2021, the government announced the building of a new modern OPP detachment in Cambridge to replace the former facility that was destroyed by fire in September 2018. The new detachment has been added to the province’s OPP Modernization – Phase 2 project, which also includes the nine completed detachments. Construction of the Cambridge detachment is expected to begin in fall 2021 and completed by mid-2023.

The structures being replaced are an average of 40 to 60 years old and are well past their expected lifespan. They need to be replaced so the OPP can offer the best possible service to the people it serves.

New detachments will range in size from 17,000 to 35,000 square feet, and will include:

  • CCTV system for cell monitoring,
  • secure sallyport allowing for direct access to secure holding cells and prisoner processing area,
  • new accessibility standards in the public area,
  • spacious Exhibit/Evidence Vaults with a proper processing area,
  • holding cells (Adult Male/Adult Female/YOA),
  • a Collision Reporting Centre,
  • modern building infrastructure to meet changing technology requirements.

Community And Green Benefits

  • The OPP and the communities it serves will benefit from enhanced community safety with the construction of ten new facilities.
  • The new detachments will be designed and built to meet the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver standard, which recognizes buildings with reduced environmental impacts.

Economic Benefits

  • The project will create and support hundreds of direct and indirect jobs.
