     History
    July 2000, Kennedy House got the contract to run a facility for young offenders in Uxbridge. Annual funding for Kennedy House shot up from $2.8 million to $9.2 million. This was normal – it takes money to run a 100-bed secure facility – but then something strange happened.

    June 2001, Kennedy House locked out 130 correctional officers and other staff, shipping the young offenders in Uxbridge to other facilities. But even though the operation was closed, taxpayer dollars kept flowing to Kennedy House.

    2002, Brenda Elliott (Ontario’s Minister of Community, Family and Children’s Services) ordered the closure of the Uxbridge site at Kennedy House, wiping out 100 secure custody places for dangerous and damaged children in Ontario.

     Future Plans
    Mayor Bob Shepherd had earlier discussed the possibility of buying the Province-owned Kennedy House property, located at Main Street North. He suggested the purchase could be made from Uxbridge's parkland reserve funds.

    "In speaking with the Youth Centre Committee there seems to be support for a future skatepark at the Kennedy House site which we could begin planning as soon as we have confirmation on this location."
