Housing reform: A joint engagement process


This website will change as a result of the dissolution of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada, the creation of Indigenous Services Canada and the eventual creation of Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Canada. During this transformation, you may also wish to consult the updated Indigenous and Northern Affairs home page.


Text description Housing reform: A joint engagement process

This flow chart explains how Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) are jointly engaging on Indigenous housing reform.

The CMHC is developing a National Housing Strategy (including on-and-off reserve housing) through:

  • expert roundtables (Indigenous and on-reserve)
  • provincial/territorial discussions
  • online feedback

INAC‘s on-reserve housing engagement with First Nations leadership and organizations (including women, elders and youth), other government departments and other interested parties includes:

  • sessions with chiefs and technicians
  • roundtables with academics and industry experts
  • online feedback

Outcomes for the joint engagement process:

  • Laying a foundation toward achieving better housing outcomes for all Canadians and First Nation communities.
  • Ensuring that an effective long-term approach to support the management, construction and maintenance of an adequate supply of housing on reserve is developed.
