BREAKING NEWS: Affordable Housing for Seniors in York Region

Published on July 29, 2020

Announcing an investment of $4.2 million to Unionville Seniors affordable housing development.

Hello Friends, 
 
It was a pleasure to join the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, Steve Clark, Mayor Frank Scarpitti, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, Adam Vaughan, and General Manager of Housing, Regional Municipality of York, Kathy Milsom, to announce an investment of $4.2 million to Unionville Seniors affordable housing development.
 
Our government believes that every Ontarian should be able to find a home that meets their needs and their budget. The investment, announced today, will give seniors who are at risk of homelessness in York Region the housing and support services they deserve. 
 
The new 264-unit building in Markham will be partially funded through the joint federal and provincial Social Infrastructure Fund (SIF) and will include a seniors' hub and community space. It will be located at 4300 Highway 7 East in Markham and is expected to open in 2022.
 
The Social Infrastructure Fund (SIF) gives local communities the flexibility to address their local housing needs by funding new rental construction, and providing home repairs, housing allowances, rent supplements or home ownership.
