Funds for affordable housing for seniors

The province is investing over $2.6 million in the Parkview Seniors Lodge Expansion development to give seniors in Durham Region at risk of homelessness the housing and support services they deserve.

The three-storey building will include a total of 37 units for seniors, 30 of which will be affordable housing. Ten units will be fully accessible, and scooter parking will be available. The building will also include a common room and an office space.

“As Ontario restarts the economy, we need a strong community housing system that supports our most vulnerable citizens and meets local needs,” said Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing. “Supporting the Parkview Seniors Lodge expansion is a good example of how we are making our community housing system more efficient and sustainable, while ensuring seniors in Durham Region have access to housing they need.”

This investment is part of the joint federal-provincial Social Infrastructure Fund, which provides local communities with the flexibility to address their local housing needs by funding new rental construction, and providing home repairs, housing allowances, rent supplements or home ownership.
