$13 million in government funding will help renew co-op homes in Nova Scotia
Published August 12, 2022
As covered in this CBC news article, some of Nova Scotia’s housing co-ops are receiving $13 million in federal and provincial funding to protect 183 co-op homes in need of repairs.
“Given the size and the intensity of the housing crisis, it has never been as important as it is now to build capacity in the community housing sector,” said CHF Canada Executive Director Tim Ross at a press conference.
A portion of the funding will go towards incorporating 38 at-risk co-op homes to join Compass Nova Scotia.
“As we all know, maintaining and sustaining is just as important as investing in new [stock],” said co-op member and Compass board member Nikki Jamieson.
In addition to support for repairs, Nova Scotia Housing Minister John Lohr is quoted in the CBC story as wanting to see the co-op housing sector grow in the province.
