Aboriginal Housing in Canada: An Informal Background Discussion Paper

Between April 2008 and March 2010, the Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network (CAAN) worked
with a team of exceptional community and academic researchers to pursue funding to conduct
research regarding housing, HIV/AIDS and Aboriginal Peoples. This non-academic discussion
paper was prepared as background information to provide an overview of the Aboriginal
Housing environment in Canada. The goal is to deepen general understanding of the historical
roots of Aboriginal social housing policy in Canada and to contextualize the policy environment
to be influenced through current and future research initiatives.
