Housing is a human right and Friendship Centres have a long history of supporting urban Indigenous families to secure safe and affordable housing. The OFIFC works collaboratively with provincial partners to facilitate affordable housing initiatives in urban Indigenous communities. Our advocacy calls on all governments to prioritize urban Indigenous housing strategies to end homelessness and housing insecurity.
