Provincial-Federal funding to support senior housing in rural communities
A joint federal-provincial initiative will provide $160 million over four years to support renovations or replacements of seniors' lodge properties outside of Alberta's major centres.
"Nearly 70 per cent of all seniors' lodge units are in communities outside of Alberta's major centres," said Seniors Minister Jeff Johnson. "Multi-year investments like this are critical to ensuring aging properties are appropriately maintained or replaced."
The province announced it will work with housing management bodies to complete a full evaluation of seniors' lodges to determine priority projects.
