Framing Sustainable Housing Options in Canada’s North
This report was commissioned by the Conference Board of Canada’s Centre for the North. This original research contributes actionable insights into issues related to the affordability and availability of housing in northern Canada. It offers four unique case studies of tangible examples of successful and innovative northern housing initiatives across the country, as well as lessons learned from their implementation. It also explores some of the major policies and programs established and implemented across Canada since the mid 1900s to address the availability and affordability of adequate housing in the North. This report ultimately suggests that effective northern housing strategies require programs and policies that support and involve northerners, are respectful of and relevant to northern lifestyles and traditions, and are consistent with the long-term goals of sustainable development.
