ROSEDALE, B.C. — The Government of Canada is partnering with the First Nations Health Authority to build 20 affordable homes in Rosedale, B.C.
The on-reserve homes for Indigenous people of Cheam First Nations will be funded with $928,045 through the National Housing Co-Investment Fund, $20,000 in capital funding and $44,200 in annual operating costs from the First Nations Health Authority, states a news release.
The project will see the redevelopment of a low-rise wood framed apartment into 20 new affordable housing units.
“These homes will offer families and individuals the stability of having a roof above their head and will provide necessary supports to help them thrive. This is the National Housing Strategy at work,” said Taleeb Noormohamed, MP for Vancouver Granville, in the release.
