OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2009) -

A correction from source is being issued with respect to the release sent out this morning at 12:00 AM. EDT. In the 6th paragraph, it should read 2070 C Banff Avenue instead of 1070 C Banff Avenue. The corrected version follows.

Ottawa Community Housing is proud to unveil the renewed and "greener" Banff-Ledbury Community. Thanks to more than $6 million in funding from all levels of government, the community has undergone major improvements. The community renewal was launched in June 2008. The process has proven to be a successful model for future OCH community renewal initiatives.

Media are welcome to attend this event.
