Low- and modest-income families in Québec, marginalized individuals, troubled youths, seniors and persons living alone or suffering from a handicap will be able to continue to count on social and economic actors committed to ensuring that all citizens have access to safe, affordable housing. The Association des groupes de ressources techniques du Québec (AGRTQ) and the Fonds immobilier de solidarité FTQ have strengthened their partnership with the establishment of a $15 million community housing fund called the Fonds d'acquisition québécois.

The Fonds de solidarité FTQ is a development capital fund that calls upon the solidarity and savings of Quebecers to help fulfill its mission to contribute to Québec's economic growth by creating and protecting jobs through investments in small and medium-sized businesses in all spheres of activity.

The Fonds also seeks to encourage Quebecers to save for retirement and to offer its over half a million shareholders-savers a reasonable return over and above the outstanding tax benefits they receive by purchasing Fonds shares.
