A new 24-unit affordable housing complex in Ste. Anne was officially opened today by Premier Greg Selinger and MP Shelly Glover.
Villa Youville is a 24-unit affordable rental apartment complex for seniors living on low incomes in the community 40 km. east of Winnipeg.
"This new building improves the lives of many seniors living in the Ste. Anne’s area and it alleviates the growing demand for senior housing through more affordable housing options," Selinger said in a statement.
"Projects like this one are providing safe, affordable housing to many residents in our community while creating jobs and stimulating our economy," said Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Officials Languages, in a statement on behalf of Minister of State (Social Development) Candice Bergen.
The two governments gave a total of $8.5 million in funding for the project.
The building, which replaces an older personal care home that was demolished, uses geothermal heat and cooling and includes a chapel, expanded kitchen and dining room funded through community fundraising.
