Aldershot Village Residence and Martin House Seniors Residence official opening ceremonies

Affordable and Assisted Housing is a priority in Halton’s Citizens’ Priorities 2011-2014 Action Plan. Providing housing supports to address the needs of low income residents is an important issue that requires commitment, investment and response from multiple levels of government and partnerships with community agencies.

On October 19, representatives from all levels of government joined the residents of Aldershot Village Residence in Burlington for a ribbon cutting, tours and an official opening ceremony.

On November 15 we will gather again to celebrate the official opening of Martin House Seniors Residence in Milton. Together these two buildings add 145 units of assisted housing for seniors to our community.

Martin House Seniors Residence and Aldershot Village Residence are shining examples of how all levels of government can come together to meet the needs of our growing community.

I had the opportunity to meet many residents of Aldershot Village and I’m very proud of the positive feedback they have about their new building and the sense of community that lives within it. Working together, we all make Halton a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
