Improving indigenous housing outcomes is a priority.
The NHS respects the Government of Canada’s commitment to a working on a nation-to-nation, Inuit-to-Crown, government-to-government basis with Indigenous peoples, which is
why the Department of Indigenous Services, with support from CMHC, is currently engaging
with First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation partners to develop distinctions-based housing
strategies. The Government of Canada hopes to finalize these strategies in 2018.
The funding for the indigenous housing strategies will be in addition to what is announced in the National Housing Strategy.
