St-Albert — The Ontario government is providing close to $3 million to help create 18 affordable housing units in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell that will support seniors.
This funding will support the expansion of two seniors’ residences in the communities of St-Albert and Vankleek Hill. Residents moving into these low-rise expansion projects will be immediately connected to existing seniors’ communities. They will also be close to local amenities, including community centres and hospitals.
The funding was announced by Rob Flack, Associate Minister of Housing and Stéphane Sarrazin, MPP for Glengarry-Prescott-Russell.
“These homes will make a real difference in the lives of local seniors, and I’m proud that our government is supporting projects like these all across the province,” said Rob Flack, Associate Minister of Housing. “These projects in the United Counties of Prescott and Russell are a testament to our government’s unwavering commitment to build more housing of all kinds. We’ll keep working with our partners to achieve our goal of at least 1.5 million homes by 2031, and ensure Ontarians of all ages find a place to call home.”
