Immediate affordable housing opportunity for 16 family sized condos in downtown Toronto

Garrison Point Condominiums

Habitat for Humanity GTA in partnership with the City of Toronto is able to offer a rare opportunity for working, lower-income families to buy and live in a newly built two-bedroom condominium unit in the Liberty Village area of Toronto.

If you are family of up to 4 people with at least one child under the age of 16 with a household income of less than $90,500 (including both your employment income, Child Tax Benefit, and other relevant income) you may be able to qualify and become a homeowner in Liberty Village.

The opportunity

Through our unique homeownership program, families have the opportunity to:

  • Live in a newly-built condominium building in downtown Toronto
  • Keep housing costs low (below 32% of gross household income)
  • Build equity through homeownership
  • Provide a stable place to raise their children
  • Enable your family to obtain an affordable mortgage through Habitat GTA’s unique homeownership program
