It’s an exciting time for Innisfail as the town celebrates the construction of the new Autumn Glen Lodge.

Sixty new lodge units and 30 self-contained apartments will provide flexible housing options that mean members of the community will be able to stay close to home as they grow older.

Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC), along with Barb Miller, MLA for Red Deer-South, on behalf of Lori Sigurdson, Minister of Seniors and Housing, made the announcement.

“We’ve heard from families in rural communities across Alberta of the need to help their loved ones stay closer to home and connected to their support networks as they age. By investing in the Autumn Glen Lodge, we’re fighting for the needs of seniors and their families from Innisfail and neighbouring communities. This project is also creating construction jobs for dozens of hard-working people in the trades,” said Minister of Alberta Seniors and Housing Lori Sigurdson.

“I am happy to announce that our government is making a significant investment for seniors here in Innisfail. Soon, the new Autumn Glen Lodge will provide important fellowship, and safe and affordable homes to these people who have contributed so much to this tight-knit community over the years. This is one way we can give back to them – to help ensure they are able to age in place close to family and friends,” added Jean-Yves Duclos, Minister of Families, Children and Social Development and Minister Responsible for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation
