The Kincardine Housing Build is a major initiative in the 2020 Human Services Business Plan to provide additional units of community housing in a new purpose-built development.
The project will include 35 community housing units (25 one-bed units, 6 two-bed units, and 4 three-bed units) and an office ‘hub’ for Human Services.
Construction is well underway, however, due to delays in receiving utility electricity to the site, there will be a delay in occupying both the office space and apartment units. It is anticipated occupancy of the office will occur by mid-February 2021 and occupancy of the apartment units will occur by mid-April 2021.
The development of new affordable housing aligns with Bruce County’s Long-Term Housing Strategy (2013-2023) target of the development of 445 new affordable units in Bruce County.
