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.
Thank you to those who joined our second Gathering session on May 5 to review the draft Implementation Plan, share feedback, and validate the findings.
Stay tuned for our next Gathering and the release of our Implementation Plan!
