Government of Canada Invests in Co-operative Housing in Toronto


TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW/ - Every Canadian deserves a safe and affordable place to call home. That is why, in May 2018, the Government launched the National Housing Co-Investment Fund (NHCF), the largest program of its kind in Canadian history.

Adam Vaughan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, on behalf of the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), announced a $2.2 million financial commitment from the federal government for the retrofit of the Harmony ''B'' Housing Co-operation Corp.

Thanks to this commitment by the NHCF, a pillar initiative of the National Housing Strategy (NHS), this project will provide urgent repairs to the 78-unit building.

Founded in 1979, Harmony ''B'' Housing Co-operation Corp. is a rental cooperative in the heart of Toronto providing affordable rental housing. They completed the construction of their rental apartments and rental townhouses in 1981 on land leased from the City of Toronto for 99 years. They have been successfully managing the property since that time.
