89 Newly Renovated Affordable Housing Units Open In Regina To Support Low Income Families

Released on October 30, 2023

Regina families in need have access to newly renovated affordable housing, thanks to a combined investment of $12.5 million from the Governments of Canada and Saskatchewan to rejuvenate 89 social housing units.

The announcement was made today by Dan Vandal, Minister of Northern Affairs and Minister responsible for PrairiesCan and CanNor, Social Services Minister and Minister Responsible for the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation (SHC) Gene Makowsky, alongside representatives from the Regina Housing Authority to officially welcome tenants into their newly renovated homes.

The opening marks the completion of renovations to 89 two- and three-bedroom social housing units. Originally built in 1958, the units received renovations including reconfiguration of space, new kitchens, bathrooms, furnaces and appliances. Funding of $12.5 million was provided for the project through the National Housing Strategy (NHS) and the Canada Community Housing Initiative (CCHI).

"Through our bilateral housing agreement with Saskatchewan, the federal government has helped renovate 89 homes in Regina for families in need of safe, comfortable homes that meet their needs," said Vandal. "Thanks in part to this $12.5 million in joint funding, very soon these families will have new, renovated homes to call their own."

"We recognize that safe and affordable housing contributes to the health and well-being of people in our province," Makowsky said. "Our government continues to work with the Government of Canada through the National Housing Strategy to modernize and improve in-demand social housing across the province.
