Salus recognizes that recovery begins with a stable home.
The Salus communities provide a variety of housing options to accommodate the needs of our clients. All housing options include ongoing professional support for all tenants, as well as programs that promote healthy living, positive recreation and most important a community.
The waitlist for Supportive Housing in Ottawa is between 5 and 7 years long.
Ottawa Salus is proud to have been selected to partner with the City of Ottawa to build and manage a new apartment building on Clementine Blvd. Our new building will provide 42 studio apartments.
"To quote the CEO of the Mental Health Commission:
'A house is so much more than a roof over one's head. It represents dignity, security and, above all, hope.'
And that is something Salus has been providing for 38 years."

The building will feature the following common spaces:
