Canada : Government of Canada Supports Six-unit Housing Project at Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory.

All Canadians should have the security of a safe and healthy home. The Government of Canada is making historic investments toward improving the condition of housing in First Nation communities, reducing overcrowding and increasing health and safety.

Today the Minister of Indigenous and Northern Affairs, the Honourable Carolyn Bennett, congratulated Chief Duke Peltier and the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory on their new housing complex for six community families. Supported with 2016-2017 funding, the new homes were built ahead of schedule and will help ease overcrowding and reduce waiting lists for housing.

Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory is one of 55 First Nation communities in Ontario that will benefit from Budget 2016 housing investments from Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC).
