Common Challenges; Common Solutions

Although their particular circumstances are often unique, many First Nations face very similar challenges when it comes to Housing and Infrastructure programs.

First and foremost, limited funding often creates tension between what a Nation wants to provide and what it is able to provide to its members. In the face of an enormous CAD 30 billion infrastructure funding gap, many communities have developed their own solutions.

At the 5th Annual First Nations Housing and Infrastructure East, housing managers, infrastructure planners, councillors and Chiefs will come together and share their success stories. Seize the opportunity to hear ideas and strategies to improve housing and infrastructure in your community:

  • Implementing rent collection best practices
  • Encouraging tenant maintenance and mitigating costly damage
  • Developing on-reserve economic opportunities to create additional funding sources
  • Exploring green technology to with stand climate extremes and save heating costs

Join us in November 2019 to connect with indigenous problem-solvers from across Ontario and Canada!

This 2019 agenda is currently under development. In the meantime, if you are interested in receiving updates regarding the speakers and agenda for this event, please join our mailing list.
