Ontario is investing in affordable and sustainable housing in the riding of Oak Ridges-Markham, with repairs and retrofits to social housing units in the community.
The province is funding repairs and retrofits to improve units in two social housing buildings, Housing York Inc. in Markham and Oakwill Non-Profit Homes Co-operative Inc.in Oak Ridges.
Improvements will include replacing electric baseboard heaters, installing LED lighting, increasing insulation, air sealing, and upgrading appliances. These improvements will lower energy costs and improve the day to day lives of residents.
These investments are part of Ontario’s plan to fight climate change by investing proceeds from its carbon market into actions that help households and businesses reduce greenhouse gas emissions and save money on energy costs.
Ensuring everyone in Ontario has a safe and affordable place to call home is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
“Our Government is committed to providing individuals and families in Oak Ridges-Markham with a safe and affordable place to call home. By making critical upgrades in social housing at Oakwill Non-Profit Homes Co-operative Inc. and Housing York Inc, we will continue to provide people with sustainable, affordable places to live." - Dr. Helena Jaczek, MPP Oak Ridges-Markham
“Housing York is York Region’s non-profit housing provider. As one Ontario’s largest social housing providers, it is home to more than 4,000 tenants across all of our nine cities and towns. We appreciate the ongoing support from the provincial government to provide energy-saving upgrades. These enhancements will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and tenant energy costs.” - Wayne Emmerson, York Region Chairman and CEO
