Supportive Housing Update to Council - July 5 2021
Report to Council

The Township’s Supportive Housing Committee (the “Committee”), as established by Township Council, was tasked with a mandate to: achieve an acceptable level of supportive housing in the Municipality, complimentary to the needs outlined in the Thunder Bay District Social Services Administration Board’s (TBDSSAB) Housing Strategy. The demographics outlined by the Committee are: seniors, persons with disabilities, and respite care.

For many years, Terrace Bay has been considering ways of supporting members of their community to stay in Terrace Bay as they get older and potentially require more supports. A feasibility study and other initiatives have led Terrace Bay to consider a supportive housing complex. Building a supportive housing complex, however, is a major undertaking along with a considerable financial investment by the township in an era of financial instability due to the reliance on primary resource industry, which makes this potential investment even riskier. Terrace Bay has no shortage of buildings, with many storefronts vacant in the community. Constructing a new building in an era of fiscal instability is a major risk and may not be the best response to an aging population. There are several other alternatives that may provide less risk and be more financially sustainable for the community. However, these options needed to be explored, with a focus on how the community perceives these options and would utilize them.
