About WIGWAMEN INCORPORATED
Wigwamen Incorporated is Ontario's oldest and largest urban Aboriginal housing provider with 230 units scattered throughout the City of Toronto, a 92-unit apartment building for families and singles in Scarborough, a 103-unit apartment complex for seniors in downtown Toronto, a 60-unit apartment complex in the West Hill area of Toronto, and a 41-unit apartment building in Ottawa that was completed in 2014.
Wigwamen Incorporated was very pleased to have been selected to purchase one of the two Pan Am / Parapan Am Games Athletes' Village residences after completion of the 2015 Games. The building was converted to 145 affordable rental units, including five four-bedroom townhouses. This project, located in a wonderful neighbourhood in downtown Toronto, is fully occupied and in high demand.
Wigwamen offers a number of Special Programs to its tenants, including a Children's Book Club, a Back-to-School Backpack Program, a New Baby Gift Basket Program, a Dear Santa Program, a Flower Power Contest, and a Post-Secondary Scholarship Program. In addition, we hold an Annual Barbeque each summer, and serve Christmas Dinner to tenants at our buildings each year.
