Edmonton approves new supportive housing

Edmonton approves new supportive housing

EDMONTON – Edmonton City Council has approved plans for two new supportive housing sites to provide nearly 100 homes for those at risk of homelessness.

The city will lead construction of the two developments, located on city-owned land in the Garneau and Canora neighbourhoods, with funding from the existing affordable housing budget, a release said.

“The solution to our houselessness crisis is building more housing. By providing more supportive housing, the city is taking concrete action toward addressing one of its biggest challenges. These new homes will take us one step closer to creating an Edmonton for all of us,” Edmonton Mayor Amarjeet Sohi said in a statement.

The City of Edmonton will use $33.4 million from its affordable housing budget to construct the buildings and the provincial government is providing $6.59 million toward construction.

Both buildings will be designed by local design firm GEC Architecture. Garneau’s building will have 34 suites, including five barrier-free units for people with disabilities. Canora’s building will have 63 suites, including nine barrier-free units, the release said.

The sites will be transferred to Homeward Trust Edmonton when they are complete, which is anticipated for 2026.

Since 2020, the city and Homeward Trust have partnered on six supportive housing developments throughout Edmonton, creating 275 new homes for Edmontonians in need, the release said.
