The housing department has currently started construction on 16 CMHC rental units on July 5, 2012, all units are being built in the subdivision to keep costs at a minimum; this allows the band to be able to construct more units to meet the growing demand for housing. The project is projected for completion June 1, 2013.

It has been a very busy year for the Housing Departments. This summer we had the grand opening for completion of the Independent Living Complex, which now consists of 10 Duplexes (2 units per duplex). This fall we have started the construction of 8 CMHC units, expected to be completed by June 2017. The Housing Department also currently has numerous projects going through the CMHC Retro Fit Program and The INAC immediate needs Program. We also welcome 4 youth to our staff here in the housing department which we have been able to hire thanks to the CMHC HIFNEY Program, they will be with us until the end of March 2017.
The Pasqua First Nation Housing Department is currently constructing Phase 19 which consists of 4 four bedroom units and 4 three bedroom units. All units are currently being built at another location on Pasqua, but will be moved to a 3rd subdivision located on the Pasqua First Nation Reserve in the spring of 2017. Pasqua First Nation is utilizing contractors from the Pasqua First Nation to construct these 8 units.
