Feds Invest $76.2M in Quebec City Rental Housing Projects

The federal government is investing $76.2 million in eight rental-housing projects in the Quebec City region.

The projects comprise 341 purpose-built rental homes in the Quebec City and Lévis areas. The investment will be in the form of fully repayable low-interest loans, federal officials announced.

Funds will be provided through the federal government’s Rental Construction Financing Initiative (RCFi).

The Quebec City investments are among $4.1 billion in recently announced RCFi loans covering 12,000 purpose-built rental units in 73 projects across Canada.

The funding included $925 million for 20 projects in Montreal.

RCFi complements national housing strategy programs that focus on funding affordable housing units. Ottawa says the loan program is encouraging the development of more than 71,000 rental units.
