Council unanimously approved a $1.1 million project to convert two buildings into housing for Indigenous people and families impacted by COVID-19 and homelessness.

The funding is for the Tawaw (Cree for “come in” or “welcome,” and pronounced ta-WOW) Housing First Partnership between Wood Buffalo Housing (WBH), Wood Buffalo Wellness Society and McMurray Métis.

The project involves two Timberlea 8-plexes that will be turned into 12 units with 22 beds. A shared space and offices will be included. Renovations are estimated to cost $500,000 and the capital lease payment is expected to be $587,900. The buildings are owned by WBH.
