A new project jointly funded by the governments of Canada and Alberta will give senior citizens in Innisfail a new place to call home.

The two governments jointly contributed $24.2 million for the development of the Autumn Glen Lodge, which will provide 60 new lodge units and 30 self-contained apartments for senior citizens in Innisfail.

The lodge is expected to be ready for occupancy in the fall of 2020, and will replace Innisfail’s existing 57-year-old assisted living lodge.

The Autumn Glen Lodge is part of Canada’s National Housing Strategy (NHS), which aims to reduce chronic homelessness by building 100,000 new housing units and renovating more than 300,000 housing units.

In a statement, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development Jean-Yves Duclos said the Autumn Glen Lodge will be able to provide homes to Innisfail seniors who are looking for safe and affordable homes.

“This is one way we can give back to them—to help ensure they are able to age in place close to family and friends,” he said.

Minister of Alberta Seniors and Housing Lori Sigurdson said that the Autumn Glen Lodge will help seniors still connect with their families for support as they age.

“By investing in the Autumn Glen Lodge we’re fighting for the needs of seniors and their families from Innisfail and neighbouring communities,” she said, adding that the project will create construction jobs which will help the local economy.
