En bref

More and more Indigenous persons are settling in the urban areas of the Lac-Saint-Jean region. Unfortunately, they face several challenges in their search for housing and keeping it. Lack of awareness of the cultural differences between Indigenous tenants and housing providers can lead to misunderstandings. For example, it is not unusual for large Indigenous families to share the same accommodations, which can come as a surprise to building owners.

The Coalition of Indigenous Tenants and Housing Providers project aims to find lasting solutions to the problems experienced by Indigenous renters and to improve the relationship between these tenants and housing providers. Even more broadly, the project, which received a $75,000 grant from the Centre, seeks to influence the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents in cities by promoting communication. It will create the space for discussions and consultations with Indigenous tenants and landlords and highlight possible solutions proposed by each. The initiative will also instruct and train both tenants and landlords in their respective realities, rights and responsibilities.
