Quebec charity spearheads 10 non-profit residences

RIMOUSKI, QUE. — The governments of Canada and Quebec have announced they are contributing funding towards the construction of a six-storey, 100-unit affordable housing building for seniors in Rimouski, Que.

The developer for the project is Mission Unitaines. The government financing source is the Canada–Quebec Agreement under the Housing Accelerator Fund (HAF).

The Rimouski project is one of 10 to be built in the province following a similar formula, stated a release. Mission Unitaine will be responsible for designing and constructing the 10 buildings. At completion, the organization will provide the municipality, or a non-profit organization designated by the municipality, with a building ready for commissioning for a nominal fee and no mortgage.

Besides $23.5 million in HAF funding, the Rimouski project is being financed through a contribution from the City of Rimouski, which is providing the land and breaks on taxes and utility connection costs, and a donation by Luc Maurice, the Mission Unitaines board chair.

The work should be finished by spring 2026. Once construction is finished, the Office d’habitation Rimouski-Neigette will manage and maintain the building using a $500,000 reserve fund provided by Mission Unitaines.

“The Office d’habitation Rimouski-Neigette is thrilled to have been selected as a partner to own and operate this new building, which squarely meets the needs of its applicants. This new project will significantly reduce the waiting list for affordable housing,” stated Alain Boulianne, general manager of the Office d’habitation Rimouski-Neigette, in a statement.
