Energy Retrofits: Social Housing in Yellowknife Renovated

Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation – A major renovation and retrofit has been completed on one of the most important community buildings in Yellowknife. More than $495,000 was provided by the Governments of Canada and the Northwest Territories to complete an extensive energy retrofit on the Northern United Place (NUP).

The funding was made available through Canada’s Economic Action Plan, the federal government’s plan to stimulate the economy and create jobs during the global recession. Overall, the Economic Action Plan includes $2 billion for new and existing social housing, plus up to $2 billion in loans to municipalities for housing-related infrastructure. The federal and territorial governments are contributing equally to this overall investment of $110 million under the amended Canada – Northwest Territories Affordable Housing Program Agreement.
