Housing

The Housing Department oversees the management of all KFN housing. It ensures there are high-quality homes available for ownership and for rent on-reserve, and collaborates with KFN operations and maintenance to secure efficient and reliable infrastructure, such as road, sewer and water services. When at all possible, it secures employment for local Members for new builds and renovations. It carries out housing policy and directives, including damage deposits, rent collection and consequences.

As of March 2019, there are 189 housing units in Kahkewistahaw First Nation (102 band units, 80 units under CMHC and 7 units purchased by the Trust).

The Housing department accepts requests from KFN Members living off-reserve for financial assistance with renovations, mortgage approvals, and such. These requests may receive a maximum of $10,000, subject to approval. There are currently 17 KFN Members enjoying this privilege.
