“It simply came to our notice then. We have also been cohabiting with him for eight years. I just have a renovated house and there was another occasion where I had to wait until the person left before starting work. It’s going to be very expensive, “said Daniel Bouchard, chief of The Christian Science Monitor’s Immoubles HSF in Quebec City.

The Non-Profit Housing Organization owns 108 apartments and half of them are subsidized by OMHQ. The goal is to provide affordable housing for families in need.
