We’d like to correct your reporter’s reference to Options for Homes as a builder of “high-end condominiums” in yesterday’s story – Location of Future South End Community Park Highlights Monday Council Agenda.

We offer a high-quality condo with the lowest possible maintenance fees and a down payment loan of up to 15 per cent of the purchase price. This the most powerful program in Canada to help middle-income households realize their dream of owning a home.

We have built more than 3,000 units of affordable ownership housing in Ontario and we are proud of our more than 25 year history as a social enterprise company that facilitates affordable home ownership through a creative financing model. We look forward to meeting the need for affordable housing for middle income households in Guelph.

Heather Tremain

CEO, Options for Homes
