CHF Canada welcomes more funding for social housing retrofits

Published August 24, 2017

Housing Minister Peter Milczyn announced more funding for social housing retrofits. Over the next five years, using proceeds from the province’s carbon market, the province will provide up to $657 million for repairs and upgrades to make social housing apartment towers more energy-efficient. CHF Canada released a statement, welcoming the funding.

Minister Milczyn chose to make this announcement from the rooftop garden of Hugh Garner Housing Co-op in Toronto, a co-op that has taken on sustainability initiatives over the years.

Toronto Mayor John Tory spoke of the positive impact of the funding on Toronto’s social housing. MPP Han Dong (Trinity-Spadina) and Councillor Ana Bailao (Ward 18 Davenport) were also there in support of the funding announcement.
