BURNABY – The building and pest inspection has received conditional funding of $2. 6 million to build affordable rental housing for seniors, Burnaby-Edmonds MLA, Fred Randall announced today. Upon the society meeting the conditions of their proposal, the HOMES BC funding will be used to construct 39-units of one-bedroom housing in the 7100 block of Mary Avenue in Burnaby.

Many seniors have a tough enough time already with health and financial worries. I am very proud that the provincial government supports this type of development through BC Housing”. When the development is completed, BC Housing will provide the society with an annual operating subsidy to make sure tenants pay no more than 30 per cent of their household income on rent. The HOMES BC funding will help us fulfil our goal of meeting the housing needs of low-income seniors.
