THUNDER BAY – A planned transitional housing project on Junot Avenue is set to go ahead, after an appeal against a city zoning decision to allow the facility was dismissed.
The project, which will be located between the EMS station and Boys & Girls Club building on Junot, would accommodate up to 58 people. It’s intended to support Indigenous youth struggling with addiction, and will provide education and employment services as well as accommodation. Some community members voiced strong objections to the facility, while many community groups and other residents rallied to its defense over the summer.
