Ground breaks for new 192-bed LTC facility in the Sault – CTV News

Members from the Missanabie Cree First Nation, provincial government and a local Sault construction company broke ground on a new long-term care facility in the city Friday.

The Missanabie Cree-Maskwa Elder’s Care Home will house both members of the First Nation and residents of Sault Ste. Marie when it opens to the public.

“Through partnership, Missanabie Cree can get involved in dealing with the issue of not enough beds in Sault Ste. Marie, not only for our elders but for the aging population in Sault Ste. Marie,” said Chief Jason Gauthier, Missanabie Cree First Nation.

“It’s really exciting to see this come together after years spent working on it.”
