Homes Are Being Built in Cranberry Portage

Housing Minister Peter Bjornson has announced the new carpentry program through the Northern Technical Center at Frontier Collegiate will create more affordable housing for families and teach students valuable skills that will help them land good jobs upon graduation.  Students in the program work toward their level one carpentry apprenticeship while completing regular courses to graduate from high school. Bjornson says when this program originally started it was to build portables in their first effort to provide portable classrooms for high schools and middle schools and then shipping those off to southern Manitoba where usually people were building them in southern Manitoba and shipping them to the north and now it’s expanded and its provided two beautiful homes for Manitoba Housing and they’re really proud to see how the program has evolved.

             

The two homes will be rented to families with low to moderate income on a rent geared to their income basis and they are expected to be moving in November 1st.
