Provincial, federal governments sign 10-year housing agreement

July 6, 2018News

Your provincial and federal Liberal governments have signed a 10-year agreement to provide long-term funding for affordable housing.


The 10-year agreement will invest nearly $300 million to protect, renew and expand social and community housing, and will support the provincial government’s priorities related to housing repair, construction and affordability. It also involves the design and implementation of a Canada Housing Benefit for the province to provide support directly to families and individuals in need.


Increased funding for affordable housing aligns with the New Brunswick Family Plan framework, which focuses government action in seven priority areas: reducing poverty; improving access to primary and acute care; promoting wellness; supporting people with addictions and mental health challenges; fostering healthy aging and support for seniors; advancing women’s equality; and supporting people with disabilities.
