The Ministry of Communications and Works plans to take another look at implementing a “better long-term strategy” to rid the Central Administration Building of persistent mould that has been sickening public officers for years.


The ministry’s new “air quality initiative” will build on previous efforts to address the problem, said Andrew St. Hilaire, the MCW’s deputy permanent secretary.

“As the ministry’s air quality initiative advances, the building will undergo another air quality evaluation to aid in providing a better long-term strategy, like replacing the chiller units,” Mr. St. Hilaire said in a government press release. “The ministry is taking the matter seriously and understands that the health of all government employees and visitors to the building is of the utmost importance.”
