Aboriginal Housing Assessment: Community Design Needs and Preferences and Application of Local Materials – 2004

The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) provided funding for CIER and Tall Grass Development to talk to and visit Aboriginal communities to learn about housing. Four communities shared their experiences with using local materials for housing construction, and fourteen Aboriginal communities shared their ideas about alternative designs. The Aboriginal communities that participated in this research agreed to share their stories, including their challenges and successes, for the benefit of other communities. This report provides the results of these visits. The full research report and appendices are hosted by the CMHC website.
