TBDSSAB users marked 50 yrs of protected, economical housing for households at 707 John Road and 288 Windsor Street townhomes past 7 days.

“The John and Windsor Avenue townhomes have a potent sense of local community, and I search ahead to the beneficial effect the new technological innovation hub at Windsor Avenue will have on the subsequent generation of tenants,” he continued.

A ceremony was held to open up the new technology hub in the Windsor Road resource centre. This is the very first of three new Technological know-how Hubs at TBDSSAB-owned properties to be opened to the general public.

The addition of the new know-how hubs goal to make position lookups and on the web training much more available to these with no the assets at property.
