Peel Family Shelter receives nearly $7.6 million in funding from the Ontario government
The shelter has been relocated to meet increasing community needs.
Peel Family Shelter moved from 1767 Dundas St. East to 2420 Surveyor Road in Mississauga. The new shelter will create a total of approximately 110 units for families in need.
The almost $7.6 million in funding is delivered through the Social Services Relief Fund and will be used to reduce emergency shelter overflow costs and provide numerous additions including accessible rooms, barrier-free common areas, new flooring and wall finishes, and energy efficiency upgrades.
Phased construction and renovation at the site are anticipated to begin in late 2021and should be complete by fall of 2022.
“The Region of Peel is thrilled to announce the relocation of the Peel Family Shelter in Mississauga,” said Nando Iannicca, Regional Chair. “This relocation will meet increasing shelter demand by adding 60 beds, while reducing emergency shelter overflow costs. The new site will be walking distance to neighbourhood amenities and community spaces. Peel Family Shelter plays an essential role in keeping families experiencing homelessness safe. On behalf of Peel Regional Council, I want to thank the Ontario government for funding this relocation project.”
