Antigonish Affordable Housing Society

Please Note: We are in the process of updating this page, more current information will be available soon.

In September 2011, the Antigonish Women’s Resource Centre received funding from the Rural Communities Foundation of Nova Scotia to implement the Antigonish Affordable Housing Project.

The need for affordable housing was clearly identified in 2010/11 by members of the Antigonish Poverty Reduction Coalition, and by participants in the Coalition’s focus groups. Women’s Centre staff and board have been aware of the need since the 1980s, and we’ve been searching ever since for effective solutions.  Although capital grants exist to construct affordable housing, there is little financial support for the pre-construction development process, which adds complications to what is already a difficult task for community groups.
