New Seniors Affordable Rental Housing Project Opens in Warman

Released on February 6, 2017

The Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, along with Warman Mennonite Special Care Home Inc., celebrated the official opening of a new affordable rental housing project for seniors today.

Located at 201 Centennial Boulevard in Warman, North View Mennonite Haven will add a total of 72 homes to the community, 20 of which have funding contributions from the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan.

Ralph Goodale, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, on behalf of Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), along with Social Services Minister and Minister Responsible for the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC) Tina Beaudry-Mellor, City of Warman Mayor Sheryl Spence, and Warman Mennonite Special Care Home Inc. Administrator Jim Wiebe, made the announcement today.

“We recognize how important it is for seniors to be able to live independently close to their families and friends,” said Goodale.  “The official opening of North View Mennonite Haven is another example of our government’s commitment toward ensuring that senior citizens are able to enjoy a safe and stable environment.”

“We are pleased to work with the Government of Canada, the City of Warman and Warman Mennonite Special Care Home Inc. to provide affordable housing options for senior members of this community,” Beaudry-Mellor said.  “Most importantly, the seniors who will call North View Mennonite Haven home will feel safe and secure in their new surroundings.”

“The City of Warman is pleased to welcome North View Mennonite Haven Home to our community,” Spence said.  “The facility offers various affordable options to our seniors who want to remain close to their family and friends.  Our seniors are a part of our past, part of our present and will continue to be part of Warman's vibrant and exciting future as we move ahead.”

“This expansion means so much to our seniors,” Wiebe said.  “I get phone calls every week from a family needing a place for their loved one.  It is so good to be able to say yes, we can help.”
