The official opening of 237 new affordable rental housing units for seniors living on low income and persons with disabilities was held today in Toronto. The project received more than $28.4 million in funding from the federal and provincial governments. The construction of this project created more than 592 jobs in Toronto.
"These new affordable homes will allow seniors to live in safety and dignity. I want to congratulate B'nai B'rith and Patricia and Bathurst Developments for their tremendous effort in partnership with the City of Toronto and the federal and provincial governments," said Councillor Pasternak. "It affirms our commitment that we must strive toward an age-friendly city and dedicate ourselves to the truism that societies are often judged on how they treat their aging members."
"B'nai Brith Canada has always been at the cutting edge of both its social service and advocacy," said Eric Bissell, National President of B'nai Brith Canada. "This building provides the highest standard of living accommodation for seniors at an affordable rate, bears witness to B'nai Briths motto 'People Helping People'...more.
