Abbotsford's Harmony Flex Housing Project

On June 11, 2010, Stephen Mullock, Real Estate Foundation governor, attended the opening of the City of Abbotsford’s Harmony Flex Housing project. The townhouse development provides 11 homeownership units for low income seniors and people with disabilities. This is part of the City’s larger goal to provide affordable housing options to its most vulnerable citizens.

In 2009 the Real Estate Foundation granted $25,000 to the housing development, which hopes to be a model for other  communities seeking to enable housing options that are financially attainable to more of their residents. Other project partners included Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC),  City of Abbotsford, Vancity and Van Maren Group of Companies.
