Bnai Brith Canadas Affordable Housing Program

As an outgrowth of its ongoing historic commitment to serve the needs of the community, Bnai Brith Canada established an Affordable Housing Program in 1979. Its mission is to provide and maintain affordable, attractive, secure, and welcoming housing to low to moderate income residents. These residents now enjoy a decent home in a friendly community free from discrimination.

In Metropolitan Toronto, theBnai Brith Canada Family Housing Programhas provided and currently operates two senior citizens housing complexes on Bathurst Street, facing Earl Bales Park as well as a third project for seniors and families.

Each of these projects is an independent corporation, with its own Board of Directors, Committees and professional staff. At the same time, each project has access to and is able to benefit from the experience and services of the larger framework and resources of Bnai Brith Canada.
