Affordable Housing for Canadian Athletes - Village Legacy from the 2015 Toronto Pan Am and Parapan Am Games

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

We are excited to announce a new opportunity around the Village Legacy from the 2015 Toronto Pan Am and Parapan Am Games.

Wigwamen and Fred Victor who will be managing two of the buildings from the Village have expressed interest in allocating a number of units in these buildings to be rented to Canadian athletes. Wigwamen is a non-profit organization serving Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people with affordable housing. Wigwamen has been selected to purchase one of the two Pan Am/Parapan Am Games Athletes’ Village buildings. This venture will allow Wigwamen to provide 145 more units of affordable housing in the City of Toronto. Fred Victor is a non-profit organization serving homeless and low-income people living across Toronto through a suite of services including affordable housing. This new building will provide for 300 tenants, including people with disabilities, families, veterans, athletes, youth, seniors and newcomers. There are a total of 25 units available, 10 with Fred Victor and 15 with Wigwamen with some units that are accessible. The units will be assigned to individuals for April 2016.

This unique venture is one of a kind and we want athletes training and living in Toronto to be able to maximize this opportunity. The COC, CSIO and the CPC have jointly worked together to develop the package attached and to build criteria for the selection of athletes based on the needs of each of the providers.

Application Deadline: January 31, 2016
