The SHDM is committed to retain and attract families to Montréal
Montréal, Thursday, September 19th, 2013 – As a member of the Montréal = Families steering committee, the Société d’habitation et de développement de Montréal (SHDM) salutes the government’s intention to encourage young couples and families to remain living in Montréal, and confirms its willingness to multiply its initiatives in this regards in the short and medium term.
In the words of Johanne Goulet, Director General of the SHDM and representative of the Société on the Montréal = Families steering committee, “The committee’s meetings have generated fruitful and constructive exchanges among the partners of the housing milieu. The exercise is all the more stimulating because a shared analysis of problems allows us to develop a concrete and concerted plan of action. A plan shared by all the partners is clearly more effective.”
She adds that “While SHDM projects already include a sizeable proportion of large housing units accessible to families; we intend to reinforce this trend and go even further, namely by achieving the objectives of the Ville de Montréal Plan to keep families in Montréal 2014-2017. The success of the Accès Condos program directly inspires our search for innovative financing solutions aimed at meeting the expectations of those households that would otherwise not be able to purchase a home in Montreal. We are also ready to work with the various partners in the institutional, community and private sectors to develop pilot projects that would multiply and diversify the supply of housing that meets the needs of families.”
As an indispensable stakeholder and partner of the Ville de Montréal in the field of housing, the SHDM shared its expertise with the committee with respect to project design and financing as well as with respect to programs to facilitate affordable homeownership. Its activities and programs allow the Société to undertake concrete actions that coincide with two of the committee’s recommended strategic priorities: 1. Facilitate accessibility to family housing and land 2. Stimulate the availability of housing products that meet families’ needs.
