“The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #256 is extremely excited to provide support to the Meridian Housing Foundation on this affordable housing project for Parkland region, and more specifically the six units which will be prioritized for Veteran occupancy. Our mandate is to support Veterans and their families and seniors in our community. Our Veterans are looking for assistance and affordable housing is at the top of the list.
This project will go a long way to prove to Veterans that the communities in which they live care about their well-being and appreciate the sacrifices Veterans made to ensure that we can live and thrive in a free and democratic country.”
