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 OntarioAll Indigenous housing provider staff and board members are encouraged to attend these events to share their perspectives and priorities.



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.


Upcoming targeted engagement opportunities

Help shape the implementation of Indigenous housing solutions in Ontario! Daniel J. Brant and Associates will be conducting four virtual engagement sessions with Indigenous housing providers in March 2021, which will be targeted by geographic region and open to all Indigenous housing providers across Ontario.

Invitations have been sent out. Please email onpha@dbrant.ca to participate in a session in your area.
