Toronto city Mayor Tory announces opening of 59 new permanent modular homes at 540 Cedarvale Ave.

On the first official day of the new Toronto City Council term, Mayor John Tory announced the opening of 59 new modular homes on November 15, 2022 with support services for individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness, according to a statement.

Mayor Tory was joined for the announcement by Councillor Brad Bradford (Beaches-East York) and Anne Babcock, President and CEO of WoodGreen Community Services.

Mayor John Tory said, "Building more affordable and supportive housing faster is a key priority for the City of Toronto. I am pleased that we are preparing to welcome 59 seniors to brand new homes at 540 Cedarvale Ave. Investing in innovative construction methods like this Modular Housing Initiative means that we can get more affordable, permanent, rental housing built faster and deliver it to the people who need it most." 

Only a year after on-site construction began, the building at 540 Cedarvale Ave. (“Cedarvale”) is opening and will welcome residents later this month. 

WoodGreen Community Services was ticked as the non-profit housing provider through a competitive process earlier this year and will offer quality, affordable rental homes with a range of health and social supports for new residents. 

The WoodGreen has been operating in the east end of Toronto for 85 years and provides a full range of services and expertise to enhance the quality of life of seniors.

Cedarvale will specialize in housing single seniors exiting homelessness or with insecure housing.
