Canada: Aboriginals Get Access to Housing
August 6, 2007
Homeless aboriginal people with HIV/AIDS will soon be able to access 30 new single-resident housing units as part of a larger, $50.9 million (U.S. $48.3 million) housing initiative recently announced by British Columbia officials. Ten B.C. communities will host 292 new single-resident housing units, and 77 units are planned for Vancouver. Partners in the initiative are the federal government and private groups, including several nonprofit aboriginal groups and the Dr. Peter Center.
