Last month Adam Vaughan, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Families, Children and Social Development, announced that the Brampton Bramalea Christian Fellowship Residences will be offered $13.75 million for an 89-unit affordable housing project.
The funding is part of the National Housing Co-Investment Fund which comprises investments from the Region of Peel and the City of Brampton.
BBCFR was created as a registered charity in order to give affordable rental accommodation to low-income families, the elderly, or people who have a disability.
“For more than 10 years, we have been working toward helping our community’s lower-income families through providing affordable housing,” says Randy Neilson, president of BBCFR. “Now, with the help of CMHC, the Region of Peel, the City of Brampton, our friends at LIV Communities and the prayers of our BCF church family, we are excited to be able to provide 89 affordable housing units that will help lower income families enjoy a healthy, affordable, housing solution that will enrich every area of their lives.”
Back in 2016, the Region of Peel partnered with BBBCFR for a memorandum in order to build the housing project after the region gave out a request to create affordable rental housing projects in the area.
These new housing will be built at 11613 Bramalea Road with the new housing unit removing at least 45 families from the region’s centralized waiting list. It will also have 29 units made accessible for people who need special care.
