Nouvelles de l'habitation
Logement Manitoba a une vision à long terme où le logement fait partie intégrante du bien-être de chacun. Le logement offre une base stable pour aider les personnes, les communautés et l’économie à prospérer. Des logements de bonne qualité ont un effet positif sur la santé générale de la population et des communautés, et ils contribuent à réduire la pauvreté.
