First Nations’ Housing

Passed

Moved by Liberal Party of Canada (Manitoba)

BE IT RESOLVED that the Liberal Party of Canada:

Work with design and construction experts and First Nations Communities to design and build housing suitable for use in First Nations communities.

Rationale:

First Nations must be involved in the development of housing for their communities based on historic and current cultural needs. Residents must have a vested interest in owning and maintaining the property, receive training in how to use resources appropriately, and receive training in how to build and maintain the homes. Structures must be developed, situated and maintained to be sustainable in reoccurring and extreme climate conditions.
