A new community is being formed roughly an hour from Toronto, in Innifsil. They are looking to start with 30 families.
There will be a community Kollel, and there are already two existing shuls.
This project was endorsed by R’ Shlomo Miller.
Single family – detached homes – start in the low $600K’s. (This number is in Canadian dollars, which comes out to roughly $450,000 US dollars.)
Both Toronto and Thornhill no longer offer affordable housing in the areas where the frum community lives.
This problem has existed for over a decade, however, over the past 3 years, prices have soared to unprecedented heights leaving very few options for families looking to purchase and live in a home.
Many cities have been explored to ascertain their viability as an optimal place to create a new community.
The largest factors here include:
• Critical growth potential of like-minded frum families
• Ability to play a role in the community
• Proximity to the GTA
