Liberals promise $638M for urban Indigenous housing
|CTVnews 20 Feb 2019 at 09:28|
Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos and Indigenous Services Minister Seamus O Regan are making the announcement this afternoon.
About two-thirds of the money is to address Indigenous homelessness and one-third is to improve existing social housing for Indigenous families in urban centres.
Duclos says this is a "priority" for the government and that affordable housing is key to building strong communities.
Determining exactly how and when the money is spent will depend on partnerships and agreements with provincial governments and local housing providers.
