VAL-MORIN, QC, Jan. 11, 2024 /CNW/ – Today, the governments of Quebec and Canada and the City of Val-Morin marked the start of phase 2 of La Capucine, a project to build 40 new social and affordable housing units for semi-independent seniors in Val-Morin. The initiative, spearheaded by the organization Les Habitations La Capucine, represents a total investment of more than $18.3 million.

The Government of Quebec is contributing more than $9.7 million to this project, including nearly $5 million from the Société d’habitation du Québec (SHQ) through its AccèsLogis Québec program. The SHQ is also securing the organization’s mortgage loan. The Government of Canada has contributed more than $5.3 million under the third Canada-Quebec Rapid Housing Initiative Agreement.

The City of Val-Morin is providing nearly $5.6 million in financial contributions, including $4.8 million from the Government of Quebec, delivered through the tripartite agreements that the City signed with the SHQ and the Ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation.

Quebec’s financial contribution to this project is essential and demonstrates how our investments in the creation of affordable housing are reaching all regions of Quebec and all people with special needs.”

This additional assistance of $550,720 over 5 years is covered by the SHQ (90%) and the City of Val-Morin (10%).
