New Seniors Wellness Centre in Sudbury
McGuinty Government Strengthening Seniors’ Housing
Ontario is creating 50 jobs while supporting the construction of a new multi-purpose wellness centre for seniors in Sudbury.
With support from the province's Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation (NOHFC), the Sudbury Finnish Rest Home Society, also known as Finlandia Village, is completing the construction of an 8,532-square-foot wellness centre. It includes a medical office for the home's in-house physician, educational programming space and a multi-purpose hall for larger gatherings.
Investing in Northern Ontario communities is an important part of the McGuinty government's Growth Plan for Northern Ontario. A strong northern economy creates local jobs and protects the services that mean the most to families - health care and education.
- Ontario is supporting this project through the NOHFC’s Infrastructure and Community Development Program.
- Finlandia Village offers a mix of housing for 285 seniors including apartments, congregate living, assisted living and long-term care. It has recently completed the construction of 82 affordable apartments.
“This new wellness centre will be a place where residents can gather, receive medical services and enjoy leisure activities all under one roof. I am very pleased that the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund could support this important centre in one of our community’s most sought-after retirement homes.”
“This investment in the construction of our wellness centre is helping to respond to the needs of our community’s growing seniors’ population. This project could not have been completed without the support of the NOHFC and the generous residents of Greater Sudbury”
