This image of the proposed Lokia project shows the former residence of the Pères du Très-Saint-Sacrement (centre), which is being converted to a care facility. This view is of the west side of the existing church (right) and residence, with Avenue du Père-Pelletier in the foreground.

Construction of a large housing complex mainly for seniors is well underway on a prominent site behind Église du Très-Saint-Sacrement, at the corner of Chemin Sainte-Foy and Avenue Saint-Sacrement. Meanwhile, the future of the church building itself is uncertain.
