The Cree Nation Government will table a housing strategy next week
Jan 24, 2020
Programs to increase financial literacy and education encouraging high-income earners to move out of social housing are just some of the ideas put forth in a housing report prepared for the Cree Nation Government.
The report was commissioned to evaluate the readiness of Quebec Cree to buy their own house, and to help communities address some long standing log jams with regard to a lack of housing and maintenance.
There is an immediate need for more than 2,000 homes in Eeyou Istchee, and getting more people to move into private home ownership is one way the Cree Nation Government is trying to tackle the housing issue and help build wealth in Cree communities.
The report titled Market Research: Private Housing in Eeyou Istchee suggests interest in private home ownership is very high, but readiness is low, according to Irene Neeposh.
