Urban Native Housing Program
Persons of native Ancestry routinely face discrimination when searching for rental accommodations in urban centers and many of them end up living in substandard, unsafe dwellings. In response to this discrimination and in acknowledgement of its historic commitment to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, the Federal Government created the Native component of Section 56.1 and 95 of the National Housing Act (the Urban Native Housing Program), allowing Native non-profit Corporations purchase and construct housing units to provide safe, affordable and decent housing to persons of Native ancestry.
