Adequate and safe housing continues to be one of our most important needs. As programs to facilitate this evolve, we would love to see more opportunities for home ownership in Sts’ailes.

Stepping up to meet this need is the newly created sub division, ready for the construction of new homes purchased by Band members. Fifty of the sixty lots have already been reserved.

More examples of tremendous growth within the Housing Department:

  • A steady increase in housing arrears collection in the last year 
  • The sale of eight Band rental units to Band Members in good standing
  • A twelve-unit renovation project completed through INAC at a cost of $138,000
  • Renovations to six homes through the RRAP program  at a cost of $96,000
  • Three homes approved for renovations through INAC at a cost of $67,000

Council’s vision is to build on this positive growth and meet the need for even more homes. This will enable our people returning home to Sts’ailes to live in healthier and safer conditions - especially our Elders and those with disabilities.
