Housing for WLFN Members
The WLFN Housing department is responsible for all Nation owned rental units, assists with member owned houses on reserve, and liaises between renters/owners and the Public Works department regarding repairs and maintenance.
The Housing department also seeks funding through Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) for housing maintenance grants. Housing also collaborates with utility companies to upgrade homes to the most energy efficient appliances and features.
For more information, or to inquire about housing unit availability, please contact WLFN Housing Advisor Samantha Dick.
In 2020, the Williams Lake First Nation commissioned a comprehensive report from Strategies North Advisory Inc. to determine the Nation’s specific housing needs, both on and off reserve. The final report also included key recommendations to execute WLFN’s Housing Strategy for the next 10 years. The results of survey engagement with members were compelling, revealing that WLFN’s membership will require over 150 homes to be built in the next decade to keep pace with member population growth.
