WINNIPEG - The former Hudson's Bay department store in downtown Winnipeg will be converted in part to affordable housing.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the city today to help with the announcement.
The six storey heritage building is being transferred to the Southern Chiefs Organization which represents 34 First Nations across Manitoba.
All three levels of government will contribute millions of dollars to the plan.
The transformation, in the name of Indigenous reconciliation, will include almost 300 affordable housing units, a museum, an art gallery and restaurants.
