“It is with great joy that we welcome this news. As soon as I arrived in office, we began to make presentations for this project to succeed and in barely a year, our efforts have already borne fruit. I would like to thank Mrs. Isabelle Couture, director of the Office d’habitation Thérèse-De Blainville, as well as our two MNAs, Mr. Eric Girard and Mrs. Louise Chabot, for their excellent work in this file. Thanks to our concerted efforts, 12 units will once again be available for low-income people,” said the Mayor of the City of Sainte-Thérèse, Mr. Christian Charron.

In all, a total amount of $4,089,830 will be invested by the provincial and federal governments for the demolition and reconstruction of HLMs in Carré Saint-Pierre. The call for tenders for the plans and specifications for the architecture and engineering of the building is currently underway, while the OHTDB plans to launch the call for tenders for the construction of the building in October 2023.

“We believe we can offer residents of the MRC new affordable housing before the end of 2024. This new building will accommodate 12 people, aged 65 and under, living alone and with low incomes. We would like to thank all the partners for the realization of this beautiful project,” says the director of the Office d’habitation Thérèse‑De Blainville, Ms. Isabelle Couture.

“This reconstruction is long overdue in the region. It was important for us to support her since she will offer a better quality of life to the citizens of Sainte-Thérèse. Our government is continuing its work to promote access to and affordability of housing in Quebec,” said Eric Girard, Minister of Finance and Minister responsible for Relations with English-Speaking Quebecers and MNA for Groulx.
