Our Vision

A Vision for a New Authority

Based on the feedback from the FNHIC-BC’s first round of engagement sessions

The FNHIC-BC has developed a Proposed Vision and Core Directives for the new Housing & Infrastructure Authority.






First Nations with full responsibility for their own housing and infrastructure



Improved housing and infrastructure services for First Nations across the housing continuum from housing the homeless to creating financing mechanisms for people who want to design and build their own home



A First Nations designed and managed institution that uses cutting edge housing and infrastructure specialists from across the country and results in a thriving First Nations housing and infrastructure sector


No First Nation Left Behind

Services that close the gap between housing opportunities in reserve and urban communities
