Leduc to get new affordable housing complex

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Minister Sigurdson announces replacement of Linsford Gardens affordable housing units in Leduc.

Budget 2017 upholds the government’s commitment to investing $1.2 billion over five years, through the Capital Plan, to build affordable housing units for Albertans.

“Our government is making life better for Albertans by building affordable housing. This significant investment is long overdue and the new Linsford Gardens townhouses will not only help address the housing shortage but help revitalize the neighbourhood," Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing.

“We are very pleased with the funding announcement made by the Government of Alberta today. The funding of Linsford Gardens allows Leduc Foundation to continue to be a leader in the development and management of affordable housing within the Leduc region. Linsford Gardens will contribute to the provision of housing options for low- to moderate-income seniors, individuals and families of the Leduc region communities," Robert Young, chair of the Leduc Foundation Board of Directors.
