The City of Brampton is leasing out land to build a new long-term care home with affordable housing units.
City council have given staff the green light to sign a lease on up to five acres of land at the Flower City Community Campus to build a 160-bed long-term care home and 140 affordable housing units.
Golden Age Village for the Elderly (GAVE) is a registered charity working to ease issues around housing availability for seniors in Ontario.
“The City of Brampton is dedicated to supporting our seniors, who sacrificed their lives to give their children, grandchildren, freedom and a better life in Canada,” said Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown.
He says this project will help seniors live in comfort and security in Brampton.
“This project directly supports our City’s most vulnerable residents and the socio-economic impact of this Campus of Care facility will support the City’s economic recovery by creating jobs in the City of Brampton in many sectors including construction, information technology and long-term care,” said Brampton CAO David Barrick.
