New and Exciting position

I am very pleased to announce that I have taken on an acting position with the Housing and Infrastructure Council (HIC) of B.C. as their Executive Director.

“HIC is working to create a First Nation controlled housing and infrastructure authority (Authority) in British Columbia. Once established, the Authority will assume responsibility for First Nations housing and infrastructure services and associated programs in BC.”

“Creation of an Authority is a step towards indigenous self government and the goals of First Nations and federal governments for housing transformation under the federal government’s national indigenous Housing Strategy and the Assembly of First Nations’ national First Nations Housing Strategy. It also contributes towards the Government of Canada’s directive to transfer its delivery of indigenous services to indigenous control. It also reinforces the indigenous view that housing decisions should be in the hands of indigenous people.”
