  1. lol you really think the government/banks are gonna allow affordable housing? they make so much money from condos and copy-paste townhouses

    1. thats why its on Indigenous communities and not for the rest of canada the banks and government dont care

  2. The federal government is responsible for housing on reserve lands. Nice to see a local solution when the feds ignore the issue.

    1. Must be easy to maintain these tiny homes.
      I wouldn’t mind having one. Houses are so expensive in the big cities now a days.

  4. …..and they’ll tear these things apart like the other homes on the reserves that were built with taxpayer $$. Don’t believe me, just live on a reserve for a few weeks.

  6. This is a great idea as long as you can hook up water and electricity. The roof should also be covered with Solor Panels.
