VICTORIA — In Vernon, B.C., 25 new affordable homes are now open for families, seniors and people living with disabilities.
Through BC Housing, the Government of British Columbia invested a total of $2.75 million in two projects, states a news release.
The Village at Okanagan Landing has 13 one-, two and three-bedroom units. The province will provide an annual operating subsidy of $112,000 and invested $1.55 million in development.
An additional 12 homes have opened at 4005 Pleasant Valley Road. The province will provide an annual operating subsidy of $94,000. The project also received $540,000 from the Government of Canada and $1.2 million from the province during development.

The federal government is committed to ensuring that all Canadians can find a home that meets their needs and budget,” said Taleeb Noormohamed, MP for Vancouver Granville, in the release.
