Indigenous Housing Provider Gatherings
The 2020-2021 Indigenous Housing Provider
Gatherings are bringing together First Nations, Métis, and Inuit housing
providers from across the province in a series of three virtual engagement
sessions to develop a “For Indigenous, By Indigenous” community-led Implementation
Plan for ONPHA’s Urban and Rural Indigenous Housing Plan for Ontario.
Developing an Implementation Plan
The development of an Indigenous community housing sector-led Implementation Plan is among ONPHA’s key strategic priorities, as we work to address core housing need among urban and rural Indigenous communities in true partnership with Indigenous partners based on principles of self-determination, sovereignty, and reconciliation.
We are excited to be re-engaging with Daniel J. Brant and Associates, the team that developed the initial Plan, to develop the Implementation Plan based on engagement with the Indigenous community housing sector. We hosted four engagement sessions targeted by region in March 2021, along with a sector survey, to gather feedback toward the development of the Implementation Plan.
Join us at the next Gathering session
Wednesday, May 5, 2020 | 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM
Thank you to those who joined us for our first session on November 25, 2020 and participated in the targeted regional engagement sessions and survey activities in March 2021. Drawing from the four regional engagement sessions and sector survey, Daniel J. Brant & Associates are drafting the Implementation Plan and eager to hear your thoughts.
Join us on Wednesday, May 5 for a discussion with Indigenous housing providers from across the province to review the Implementation Plan, share feedback, and validate the findings. You will receive a draft of the Implementation Plan to review ahead of the Gathering. Participants will also hear updates from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the Community Housing Transformation Centre.
All Indigenous housing provider staff and board members are encouraged to attend this free event and share their organizational and community priorities and perspectives on the Implementation Plan.
ONPHA will keep our entire membership informed about the development of the Implementation Plan to continue building awareness and support for Indigenous housing solutions across the community housing sector.
