The federal government is kicking in more than $6.6 million towards the completion of an affordable housing project on the site of the former Christ Church Bells Corners rectory.
This amount is complemented by $740,000 for fee and development charge waivers from the City of Ottawa and $4 million in Ontario Priorities Housing Initiative funding.
Located at 3865 Old Richmond Rd., the building, which has been named Hollyer House, will include a mix of unit sizes and rental affordability to create a diverse community and address the needs of vulnerable populations, including seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families.

Four years after the University of Ottawa opened its first satellite campus in Kanata North, the university is expanding its presence in the tech park.
Of the building’s 35 units, 10 will be dedicated to single women and women with children. The ground floor of the building will host a community services hub containing a food cupboard and a community resource centre.
“The Anglican Diocese of Ottawa is a strong advocate for affordable housing and is actively committed to providing new units,” said Shane Parker, bishop of the Anglican Archdiocese of Ottawa, in a news release.
The federal funds will be administered through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. as part of the federal government’s National Housing Strategy.
