MPP announces affordable housing funding for Stratford

Perth-Wellington MPP Matthew Rae has announced new affordable home builds coming to Stratford.

According to a media release from Rae's office, the province is providing $1 million through the Social Services Relief Fund to create six affordable housing units in Stratford.

Additionally, a partnership with the federal government is allowing the province to provide over $3 million to create 33 affordable units in this development, known as the Britannia Street Housing Project.

The project is being constructed in two phases.

"Phase One is now complete and located at 230 Britannia Street. It consists of 35 units, two of which are fully accessible. Residents also have access to many amenities including laundry facilities, air-conditioning, on-site vehicle and bike parking, scooter storage, and barrier-free design," a statement from MPP Rae said. "Phase Two, a three-storey building at 200 Britannia Street, is under construction. It will include 27 units, of which six will be fully accessible. The building will also include a community room with an adjoining outdoor covered patio, and a community garden where residents will be able to grow their own produce. Residents of both buildings will have access to the communal spaces."
