Indigenous – Community Housing Transformation Centre – Centre de transformation du logement communautaire

Reconciliation With Indigenous Peoples

We recognize that there is a significant infrastructure gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities in Canada.

This gap is the result of hundreds of years of systematically unbalanced relationships and dispossession that continue to fuel an increasingly acute housing crisis for Indigenous peoples.

We want to contribute to reconciliation by promoting co-partnership in the community housing sector. Indeed, we believe that the concept of community-based housing can be in tune with Indigenous traditions. When properly implemented, community-based housing is an empowering tool for upholding rights and developing capacity. It can be a source of hope, while strengthening Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities.

We are therefore committed to:

  • Promoting, within the Centre and externally, reconciliation with Indigenous peoples
  • Accompanying and supporting Indigenous-managed housing providers in their transformation efforts
  • Creating tools and training adapted to the needs of Indigenous peoples, in order to facilitate the deployment of community-based housing and contribute to reconciliation
