Canada Begins Building Modular Tiny Houses For Homeless Veterans

Two Ontario cabinet ministers paid a visit and brought their chequebook to Kingston on Tuesday morning to support housing for homeless veterans.

Steve Clark, the Brockville-area Conservative MPP and minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, and Lisa MacLeod, minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, pledged $200,000 for the Home for Heroes Foundation to contribute to building 25 tiny homes for military veterans who experience homelessness.

Two villages are being constructed in Edmonton and Calgary, with Kingston to be the first Ontario site.

The province is also dedicating one acre of land on the Kingston Provincial Campus to build the units and turn the area into a veterans village.
