At the 4th Annual First Nations Housing and Infrastructure Forum East, participants have the opportunity to learn from each other and compare strategies.

In the face of this reality, First Nations have developed many of their own solutions to build robust housing programs, provide necessary infrastructure and create opportunities for their members. Now it is time to come together and share these success stories so that more communities can adapt them to their own use.

At the 4th Annual First Nations Housing and Infrastructure Forum East, housing, capital and infrastructure managers will come together to share their experiences and learn from each other. The event will address the most crucial issues affecting housing and infrastructure and showcase innovative ways to enhance communities.

  • Maximize available housing resources and find new strategies for construction and maintenance
  • Provide training and employment opportunities to members tied to housing and construction
  • Plan infrastructure according to current and future community needs
  • Build in a sustainable way to benefit the environment and save heating costs

Speakers Include:

Anne Marie Headrick Housing Manager Garden River First Nation
Roy Weitsche Community Capital Planner Waskaganish First Nation
Julie Pellerin Manager Developmental and Operational Support Services First Nation Land Management Resource Centre
Shane Chegahno Housing Manager Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation
