Fort Saskatchewan residents with low income will soon have a new option for safe, modern and affordable housing, with support from the Alberta government.

The province is investing $6 million toward an affordable housing project in Fort Saskatchewan. The new development is expected to provide around 83 one- and two-bedroom units for families and seniors with low income.

The four-storey apartment building will be built on land donated by the City of Fort Saskatchewan, located adjacent to the new Dr. Turner Lodge. It will ensure people living on low income, in or near Fort Saskatchewan, can stay in their community.
