A strategic housing and infrastructure plan is necessary to support the growing needs of the many diverse Indigenous communities in Western Canada. The Trudeau Government has allocated an additional $3.4 billion over five years to housing and infrastructure projects for Indigenous communities as part of the 2017 federal budget. This is on top of the $120 billion allocation announced in 2016. With funds readily available, now is the time for First Nation communities to revisit their strategic blueprints for accessing funding and make the necessary improvements to their housing and infrastructure.

Join us at the 2nd Annual First Nations Housing & Infrastructure West forum where you will hear from your First Nations counterparts, Indigenous business groups, engineering companies, government and other key infrastructure stakeholders offering insights on how to succeed in today’s environment. Gain key insights from experts about the creative financing solutions and innovative economic development strategies they have adopted to address unique challenges. Hear success stories from communities with innovative solutions, and discuss new possibilities for your next project.

I look forward to welcoming you this April!
