Twenty tiny homes to benefit low income and homeless residents in La Loche – larongeNOW

An affordable housing project in La Loche will specifically target low-income residents and the homeless.

Twenty tiny homes are set to be completed this December with occupants allowed to move in by the end of February. While the criteria of who will be qualified for a unit is yet to be determined, La Loche Mayor Georgina Jolibois explained single residents and those who are homeless will be the top priorities.

“Every housing initiative the community has done have allowed local people to have a unit,” she said. “Here in La Loche, housing is an issue, a shortage of housing is still an issue, so any new initiative that we can bring in and give to local residents, it helps tremendously. Twenty people will have an opportunity for a new home and that’s pretty exciting.”

The units will include a kitchen, living room, one bedroom, a bathroom and laundry amenities. Jolibois noted the project was made possible through a partnership between La Loche, the federal and provincial government, as well as the Métis Northern Region Two. The total cost of the project wasn’t available by publishing.
