Affordable housing for seniors

Affordable housing changes lives.

Markham Inter‐Church Committee for Affordable Housing (MICAH) celebrates the grand opening of its latest affordable housing project in Markham on September 15.

The building is named after and in memory of the late Lion Larry Tod who was a member of the Markham Lions Club for many years and served as the club secretary.

Larry Tod Place is a 4-storey apartment building with 32 units – 30 for seniors, two for the use of 360ºkids (a non-profit organization that supports homeless youth) and six units will be fully wheelchair accessible. There is also a meeting/common room on the main floor as well as laundry and storage facilities.

This new residence is located on an underutilized parking lot owned by Water Street Non-Profit Homes Inc. where Cedarcrest Manor is located.

Cedarcrest Manor was an early and still highly successful project of MICAH’s completed some 25 years ago. This location is ideal because of its proximity to local public transit and also because of the Seniors Activity Centre located on the same property.

This is MICAH’s fourth build to help house people on the long waiting list in the Markham area for affordable senior housing.

MICAH is grateful for the opportunity to be a small part of the solution to this pressing problem.
