Program Achievements

  • An additional 22 new 3-bedroom rental units for families. This addressed families in overcrowded rental units and families waiting for housing.


  • Implementation of regular inspections and regular maintenance plan for Band Rental Units. This is to ensure the rental units and appliances are in good condition and build a relationship between Housing and the tenant. Having regular Inspections helps both the Tenant and Housing by fixing a problem immediately before it causes an inconvenience to the tenant; reduce the turnover time for each unit; ensure tenants are complying with their tenancy obligations. Seasonal maintenance plan ensures the exterior, interior, and services remain in good working order for Tenants to live in a well- cared-for place. This would minimize interruption in services and reduce repair cost for both the tenant and the Housing Dept, respectively.

  • Installation of 168 heat pumps for Homes and Rental Units.
