Indigenous communities across Canada are working with government partners to create a concrete foundation to support housing prosperity.

Initiatives include transferring the government portfolio to a national Indigenous-lead housing authority, while housing projects continue to be funded by the federal government’s combined $16 billion allocation from the last three years. Meanwhile, provincial leaders are launching new funding initiatives that will support both on- and off-reserve housing that will allow for greater continuity of housing requirements for people and communities. Join us at the 3rd Annual First Nations Housing & Infrastructure West forum on April 16 – 18, 2019 in Vancouver, B.C. to hear the latest funding announcements and financing opportunities for both housing and infrastructure needs. Hear how communities are bridging the gap between on- and off-reserve housing, and network with industry leaders in energy, construction and design to identify the latest technologies that will support your community for generations to come.
