About the Indigenous Caucus
The Indigenous Housing Caucus was established in 2013 at our annual Congress on Housing and Homelessness to recognize the large number of Indigenous-led and Indigenous-serving organizations who are members and wanted to work together for better housing for northern, rural, and urban First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Peoples. Indigenous housing and homelessness service providers across the country face several challenges to which the Indigenous Caucus is responding to with resourcefulness, good management, and innovation.
Indigenous Caucus Day
Since 2013, the Indigenous Caucus has grown both in size and influence, becoming a credible body for developing and providing Indigenous policy advice on housing and homelessness. The Indigenous Housing Caucus meets together in person once a year at the Indigenous Housing Caucus Day which takes place in conjunction with the National Congress on Housing and Homelessness. It is a full-day collaborative forum attended by over 200 delegates from across Canada, ranging from urban and regional non-profit Indigenous housing corporations, local homelessness service providers and regional homelessness coordinators, representatives of all orders of government, and private sector actors in academia and business.
