Guide to Establish a Housing Authority
FNNBOA with funding from Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) is pleased to announce their guide entitled, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Housing Authorities and to Establish One in First Nations Communities. The guide gives an overview on how to establish either a federal or provincial not for profit organization and how this becomes the housing authority.
Partnership development is extremely important in today's complex world, regardless of whether your interests lie in finance, education, health or building homes. Partnerships are critical, particularly so to an organization with ambitions like FNNBOA.
First Nations Remote Communities
For most of Canada, conducting Building inspections is not a challenge.
However, conducting inspections for new homes in many First Nations is not always possible. When this happens, homes are not constructed to national building code requirements and will need major repairs in a few years. This is especially a problem in First Nations remote communities.
FNNBOA have developed teleinspections that uses electronic information and telecommunication technologies to support building code compliance.
