Canada to Make Major Investment for Supportive Housing in Winnipeg
TheA Honourable Ahmed Hussen, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), alongside the Honourable Dan Vandal, Minister of Northern Affairs and Member of Parliament for Saint Bonifacea??Saint Vital announced an approximately $5 million financial commitment from the federal government, $2.5 million of which is a forgivable loan. The Riverwood House is a Supportive Recovery Housing complex located at 65 Stadacona St in the Elmwood suburb, containing 40 bachelor units for people experiencing housing instability and who are in recovery from addictions and mental health issues. This will add to the current number of beds in Winnipeg, which is critically low for the numbers of people who are in the process of exiting addictions and mental health issues.Riverwood House is to provide participants with a fully independent living experience that will faciliate the building of meaningful life-skills. Part of that experience will include access to a trauma informed recovery program. The project will provide an innovative approach to filling a supportive housing gap with a facility that provides abstinence-based housing within a community context. This will be accomplished through participants having access to onsite strategic services that won't include the limitations of exit timelines restrictions during the recovery process. The goal of this project will be to create a stable and supportive housing community while helping individuals transition to lasting, healthy and meaningful independent living.
