Amalgamation leads to creation of new housing office


A fusion between the Office municipal d’habitation du Haut-Saint-Laurent and the Office municipal d’habitation de la municipalité de Ste-Martine has led to the creation of the Office d’habitation du Haut-Saint-Laurent, which will manage 810 social housing units within the region. Seven municipalities will benefit from the services of this new organization with the support of the Société d’habitation de Québec and its partners.
Across the province, 13 new housing offices were created in seven different regions. According to Christian Dubé, the Minister responsible for Government Administration, President of the Conseil du Trésor, and Minister responsible for the Montérégie region, the creation of the Office d’habitation du Haut-Saint-Laurent was made possible in large part due to the commitment by the directors of the two housing authorities who chose to join forces in the interest of offering better services to the population occupying or waiting for social housing units.
“This is excellent news for everyone in the sector,” said Claire IsaBelle, MNA for the Huntingdon riding, who noted the community “will now have an even stronger voice when it comes to major housing issues in our area.” (S.R.)
