REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS – FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR RURAL HOUSING FOR SEASONAL WORKERS / SEASONAL INDUSTRIES

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Cape Breton Partnership is seeking a consultant to undertake a Feasibility Study of the purchase of surplus trailers from the Muskrat Falls Generating Project in Newfoundland and Labrador and their redeployment as temporary housing for seasonal employees in Cape Breton.

The research would be to conduct quality assessment and inventory of available units and conduct a financial analysis of the full costs of relocating these trailers to Cape Breton Island and set on municipal or private land in rural areas facing high shortages of housing for temporary workers. This project would require an environmental scan, an analysis of potential options available for housing and land and comparison of a review of what has been done in other jurisdictions.

This study must specifically evaluate the potential effectiveness of this opportunity to attract and retain seasonal workers particular in the Tourism and Seafood processing sectors.
