  • create or repair at least 4,000 shelter spaces for victims of family violence
  • create at least 7,000 new affordable units for seniors
  • create at least 2,400 new affordable units for people with developmental disabilities

Projects funded through the initiative will also:

  • support Canada’s climate change goals
