The Beardy’s & Okemasis’ Cree Nation delivers its own housing program. The types of homes include traditional single-family homes, and trailer homes.
It is recognized that there is an association with housing as a sense of belonging to the community. Housing also establishes a connection to the community and a willingness to stay on the traditional lands. By caring for existing homes and the provision of new homes, as well as providing options for youth and elders, Beardy’s & Okemasis Cree Nation values housing as a vital part of the community.
On-reserve housing is governed by the Beardy’s & Okemasis’ Cree Nation Housing Authority.
