"Hundreds of students, new Canadians, seniors and families are among more than 1,700 households that will benefit from new and improved housing in the downtown Winnipeg area. . . 'Our Government is moving aggressively to ensure Canada's Economic Action Plan is implemented rapidly here in Manitoba and across Canada,' said Toews. 'I'm pleased that more lower-income individuals, families, seniors and persons with disabilities will benefit from safe, affordable housing in their communities.' The Province of Manitoba is contributing $227 million over two years for housing initiatives in Winnipeg and across the province. The federal contribution is close to $100 million over two years under Canada's Economic Action Plan, the two-year extension of federal funding for the Affordable Housing Initiative (AHI) and the renovation programs for low-income households, for a combined investment of $327 million."
