The units are part of a new three-storey apartment building planned next to the Oakdale Community Centre. Once complete, the building will have 41 new one-bedroom units for seniors and persons with disabilities.

The Simcoe County Housing Corporation (SCHC) will own and operate this new facility. The organization provides affordable housing to seniors, families and individuals in the region. All tenants who live in SCHC buildings pay rent based on their incomes.


"Seniors, like every Canadian, deserve a safe and affordable place to call home. Thanks to the National Housing Strategy we are building new homes in Simcoe County, and all across Canada, ensuring seniors have the opportunity to age safely and remain connected to their communities. We know that when seniors feel safe and can age in place all Canadians benefit." ? The Honourable Filomena Tassi, Minister of Seniors

"Our government is committed to putting affordable home ownership in reach of more Ontario families and we know that many seniors, in particular, live on fixed incomes. We are proud to help seniors in Simcoe County find a place that meets their needs and their budgets.  ? The Honourable Steve Clark, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing
