Our Purpose

To augment the supply of healthy and sustainable ownership and rental housing units in The Blue Mountains which are affordable to a larger portion of the population, by:

Providing financial assistance for the purchase of a home

Providing grants for the creation of secondary suites 

Our goal is a school full of children supported by their parents and grandparents or individuals, all living in the vibrant, diverse community of The Blue Mountains.

Concept Plan Community Consultation Survey

BMAHC is looking for your input on conceptual plans prepared for our first attainable housing development at 171 King St East, which we are referring to as our Gateway site. While we are at the preliminary stage with technical assessments still being conducted to verify some of the site details and design considerations such as traffic, noise and odour, we want to your feedback to assist our Board in determining the criteria for the scale, layout and look of the project.  This criteria will be provided to the Builder we hire to design and construct the project. Survey is open until May 21st 2020, click the link below to provide your feedback.
