New Gate Apartments

New Gate Apartments is a Provincial Homelessness Initiative that provides 49 self contained studio units of low income supportive housing for adult men and women (19+) who are at risk of homelessness and  require some support to maintain their housing.

The supportive housing model has been proven effective in moving individuals at risk of homelessness from temporary shelter to more secure housing. In addition, supportive housing connects individuals with the services and supports they need to stabilize and rebuild their lives.

The support services, simply those required to maintain independent living, are provided on an individualized basis with outreach as the main method of service delivery.

Rent: $415 if recieving Ministry of Social Development & Social Innovation funding or Rent Geared to Income (30% of Gross Income) for those recieving alternative funding resources
Utilities included: cable, heat, electricity, water, and laundry.
