June 2024 City Council Update

Advancing Indigenous Housing in Scarborough-Guildwood 4201 to 4203 Kingston Road and 120 Galloway Road. With Gabriel Dumont Non-Profit Homes.


I was pleased to see the application for affordable housing come before council this week. This project, a partnership between Gabriel Dumont Non-Profit Homes and the City, will deliver sixty-eight new units for Indigenous residents in our community.

It is exactly the kind of project we need to support – one that provides stability and opportunity while making beneficial use of existing resources.

The focus on one and two-bedroom units aligns perfectly with local needs, and the commitment to sustainability is commendable. This infill development maximizes existing infrastructure and promotes sustainability, directly addressing the lack of accessible housing for Indigenous residents.

I fully endorse this project and am pleased that Council adopted the item on June 26.

Project Overview

  • 4-storey building with sixty-eight affordable rental units for Indigenous community managed by Gabriel Dumont Non-Profit Homes
  • Mix of one-bedroom (79%) and two-bedroom (21%) units
  • Funding endorsement: the project received Open Door incentives and $28M from Rapid Housing Initiative
  • Existing 3-storey buildings with eighty units to be maintained.

The current project is an addition to the 62 Indigenous housing at 525 Markham Road in Ward 24.

As your representative, I am proud to be part of a council that prioritizes the well-being of all its citizens. I look forward to seeing the positive changes this project will bring and to continuing our work towards creating a city that is welcoming, inclusive, and full of opportunity.
