This means rooms big enough for wheelchair access and movement, lower shelves and light switches, and bathroom grab bars or step-in showers.

"Funding projects like McMahon Manor will not only improve the overall housing conditions for seniors and persons with disabilities, but also helps to stimulate the local economy and create jobs."

The federal government contributed $594,000 to the project and the provincial government invested $948,000 for the construction of the units.

The district of Taylor also contributed to the cause, donating the required land, valued at $100,000.

Taylor Mayor Fred Jarvis, says the donated land was a small price to pay for the beneficial new estate.

"The District of Taylor contributed the land for the development of this project so that seniors in our community will have a new and affordable housing option to age in place. We are proud of the work accomplished through this multi-level government partnership and would like to thank our citizens for their support on this project."
