Building safe, affordable housing

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

MP Adam Vaughan recently announced a federal government financial commitment of over $13.75 million for the construction of the BBCFR 6-storey Affordable Housing Building.

Thanks to this commitment by the NHCF, a pillar initiative of the National Housing Strategy (NHS), and to the investments of other partners, notably the Region of Peel, in cooporation with the City of Brampton, this project by Brampton Bramalea Christian Fellowship Residences Ltd. will provide 89 new units of affordable housing. This project is unique in that it also rehabilitates a registered Heritage property.

“Increasing affordable housing for low to middle-income families in Peel continues to be priority for the region and the local municipalities. I am grateful to the Brampton Bramalea Christian Fellowship Residences Ltd., our federal government partner and the City of Brampton for supporting this priority. By creating 90 new housing units through the Brampton Bramalea Christian Fellowship Residences project we continue to increase the supply of affordable housing in our community,” said Peel Region regional chair Nando Iannicca.

Brampton Bramalea Christian Fellowship Residences Ltd. is a Canadian charitable organization formed to provide affordable rental accomodation to families who are low income as well as eased conditions associated with being aged or with having a disability.
