Our morning session will discuss the major housing and infrastructure needs for Atlantic Canada and the path forward, as well as housing related priorities of First Nations governing lands under the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management. The governance and regulatory framework for housing and infrastructure can be just as important to future success as bricks and mortar. This session will explore issues such as land use planning, environment and climate change planning, enforcement of First Nation laws such as residential tenancies and trespassing, new financing options, as well as the re-design of the federal additions to reserve policy.
