Seniors and families with low to moderate incomes in Valemount are settling into their new affordable rental homes as construction has been completed on a new 13-unit apartment building. Located at 1295 Gordon St., Juniper Square is a two-storey building with one-, two-, and three-bedroom units.
The project is a result of a partnership between the Province, Columbia Basin Trust, the Village of Valemount, the Valemount Affordable Rentals Society and the Government of Canada, through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
“We wish all the best for the residents who now call Juniper Square home and congratulate our community partners, Valemount Affordable Rentals Society and Village of Valemount, as well as our provincial and federal partners on bringing this project from concept to completion,” said Johnny Strilaeff, president and CEO of the Trust. “The trust has heard from Columbia Basin residents that affordable housing is a priority. This project supports the Valemount community to respond to this need.”
Residents began moving into their new homes in September 2021.
