What was once a husk of a burned out building is now housing six new affordable housing units for Indigenous people, the provincial government announced Wednesday.
The building at 274 Main Street West was gutted in a fire back in 2011, said Melanie McAulay, the executive director of Sacajawea non-profit housing, which received $660,000 from the Canada-Ontario Investment in Affordable Housing agreement to support the development.
The project was finished in February of last year, and families moved in in March of 2016. The project wasn’t formally announced until today — a delay that McAulay attributed to the government side of things.
