Yukon announces $21 million to build affordable homes

WHITEHORSE — The Government of Yukon has announced funding to build 47 new affordable homes in Whitehorse.

The federal government is contributing $5.2 million to the project through the Canada-Yukon Bilateral Agreement under the National Housing Strategy. The territorial government is contributing $15.8 million through the Yukon Housing Corporation (YHC), a news release reads.

“Above all else, this new complex provides welcoming homes that strengthen the foundation for a flourishing and safe community,” said Premier Ranj Pillai in a news release.

The YHC will operate the housing which will be dedicated to people on the YHC’s housing waitlist.

The development will be located at 401 Jeckell St. and features 14 bachelor units, 16 one-bedroom units, 12 two-bedroom units and five three-bedroom units. Nine of the homes will be low barrier and designed toward accessibility.

“This project is a true testament of working together to strengthen our communities. While we have lots of work ahead, I’m pleased to see another piece of meaningful, tangible progress in creating housing stock for Yukon seniors, families and individuals,” said Brendan Hanley, member of parliament for the Yukon.
