Ontario supports Indwell residence in Hamilton

HAMILTON, ONT. — The Ontario government has announced it is allocating $5 million towards 43 one-bedroom units in downtown Hamilton that will accommodate low-income individuals in need of affordable housing.

The funding supports the Dairy Lofts residence at 225 East Ave. N. Developed by the Christian charity Indwell, the three-storey building is energy efficient and includes six barrier-free units, stated a release.

The building also has designated program space and residents will have access to amenities such as a laundry room, a kitchenette in the common space, bike storage, courtyard, terrace and communal gardens. The structure features a facade that reflects the original Royal Oak Dairy.

The funding comes from the province’s Social Services Relief Fund, which has provided $1.2 billion to help municipal service managers and Indigenous program administrators create longer-term housing projects and help vulnerable people in Ontario, including those who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.

“Our government’s housing plan is about creating more homes for the people of Ontario, including supportive housing that is critical to the well-being of both residents and the community,” stated associate minister Rob Flack in a statement. “This investment supports a project that provides housing solutions for some of the most vulnerable residents in Hamilton.”
