Quebec to invest $3-billion to renovate and build affordable & social housing

The Quebec government revealed a six-year plan for major expenditures on social and affordable housing. The source of the funding is the Canada-Quebec housing agreement, which was signed in 2018.

Municipal Affairs and Housing Minister Andrée Laforest announced that $279-million will be spent on the construction of 3,000 new social housing units, while over $2-billion will be put towards the renovation of affordable (ie. low-rent) housing in poor condition and over $847-million is being allotted to provide additional assistance to beneficiaries of the Housing Allowance program.

Earlier this year, the Quebec Federation of Low-rental Housing Tenants asked the government to to invest $ 2.2-billion for the renovation of 655 buildings across that province that have been graded D and E based on their dilapidated state.
