        • Description
        • Indigenous Housing Competition Canada invites everyone, students and professionals, to submit ideas for remote access Indigenous Community housing in Canada. 

          PURPOSE 
          The purpose of this competition is to raise awareness of Indigenous Housing in Canada and improve opportunities available to design, deliver and maintain housing for remote access Indigenous Canadians. 

          BACKGROUND 
          There are over 600 Indigenous Communities in Canada with over 60 ethnic groups located in diverse landscapes, many with remote access. Current housing is provided by Indigenous Communities or with funding from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada. Housing demand can exceed supply causing overcrowding. LOCATION The location may be any remote access Indigenous Community in Canada not served by year-round allweather roads. Transportation to communities is currently limited to air, sea lift or temporary winter road during February and March. Winter road width restriction at bridges is 4.9 metres.
