Affordable Housing Projects 

Affordable housing plays a critical role in the stability and security of many individuals and families across communities.  Housing, in general, offers a meaningful place in the community, a safe place for famlies to grow, and security of place.  When housing is affordable in a community it can provide this stability to a greater proportion of residents.

Since 2006, 438 affordable housing units in the City of Brantford and Brant County have been developed.
