“[This] announcement marks a significant step in tackling the housing crisis; we will once again be providing more affordable housing options for those who need it most right here in Edmonton,” said Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for Edmonton Centre. “These kinds of investments like Heritage Valley Apartments, transform our communities and the lives of people by providing housing where it’s needed most.”

Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2022.
