The Canadian government recently celebrated a grand opening and ground breaking for two new senior housing projects for low-income seniors. Local politicians announced the opening of a $1.7 million project with 23 new affordable housing rental units for low-income seniors in Elgin County and the ground breaking for a new project for 52 units in London, Ontario with $5.8 million in federal and provincial funding.
"Our government continues to invest in affordable housing here in London as well as across Canada to improve the life for those who need it most. These new rental options will help seniors in our community access safe and affordable housing that meets their needs," said Member of Parliament for London West Ed Holder. "This funding also creates an important source of well paying jobs".
