In 2011, Prince George, B. hosted a conference called “Changing of the Guard” with the Prince George Indian Band of Indians and Indian Chiefs. The agenda for the conference was to introduce ideas to help improve living conditions in Indian communities. This session featured discussions about housing and ways to address housing needs.

Among the presentations was a presentation from a Native elder named John “Coon” Loomis who was interviewed by the Prince George News. Coon Loomis was a long time resident of the area and his presentation was his reflections about the issues related to housing with the purpose of informing the people in his community. Coon Loomis explained that there were many issues related to housing in Indian communities – issues that are not discussed enough. He provided a list about some of the housing issues that need to be addressed. Amongst those issues is affordable, safe, suitable housing, a system that is culturally appropriate and well integrated with the services currently provided. All of these issues should be addressed in order to create sustainable solutions.

Coon Loomis: I think the best way to address that is to have a long-term housing plan. The housing is going to have to be built by that same person. So that’s going to be someone who takes care of me. My daughter is going to come to live with us. But I think the first step is to find out what kind of housing is needed in the area. It’s different from mine. But I think the best place to start is an interim housing plan, not a housing plan for the community. It needs to be a housing plan focused on the needs of people. The needs of the older people need to be addressed. They are not necessarily the priority, but it needs to be addressed.

The second important step is that we should look at who is going to help us.

The Prince George community is home to a long line of elders who can no longer be supported in their old age. With help from the Prince George County Council, the county has come up with a plan for these senior citizens and their children to live in 35 new supportive housing units that are now available. This is in addition to other supportive housing programs that are already in place in the community.

These new supportive housing units will help address the gap in housing services in the community by replacing aging and unsafe senior apartments and condos with more active living and recreational facilities.

These new supportive housing units are the first in Prince George, along with other new housing projects that will replace aging and unsafe senior apartments and condos in the communities that surround the new residential areas on the east, south and west sides of town.

Prince George County Executive Rushern Lohr said it is important that Prince George continue to work with older and disabled people, particularly those who cannot continue to live in their apartments and condos.

“The older and disabled are the ones that need the support in the community, and we need to make sure that they know what that support is,” Lohr said. “This is going to be a community effort to keep that support going.

There will be no shortage of housing units to house these seniors and elders who are struggling to access housing, but it must begin with helping to protect the aging facilities that have become unsafe and uninhabitable. The new housing units will be built on vacant lots and are not subject to the same permitting processes to renovate old buildings that are now aging and unsafe and uninhabitable.

The Prince George County Building Authority will be conducting a $50 million rehabilitation of the existing buildings and will also be making major structural upgrades to make the aging structures more resistant to severe storms and earthquakes.

In addition to the new units, the Prince George senior living center will be undergoing a $60 million investment to upgrade the facility to include better access to health services for seniors and disabled residents, and to include the expansion of accessible and safe recreational and dining facilities.

Childcare BC New Spaces Fund: A Supportive Housing Project in the Urban Aboriginal Community

The work carried out by the Childcare BC New Spaces Fund focuses on supporting new spaces in urban Aboriginal communities. The projects are a mix of co-housing, housing, workshops and other supportive spaces.

The program provides grants to support housing and other types of projects. The project selection is based on the need of the community and the extent to which a particular development has been successful and is compatible with their culture.

The New Spaces Fund was created in 2000 and began supporting projects between January 2001 and July 2003 with $15 million in grant awards. The fund continues to be supported through a combination of operating grants and a matching grant from the Ministry of Children, Youth and Community Development.

The total New Spaces Fund grant pool was worth $65,000, of which $14,000 was to be awarded to new spaces that are suitable for Aboriginal communities.

New spaces are the most cost-effective way of providing housing and support from the community to help communities achieve their vision and goals. Projects may include co-housing, workshops, childcare services, adult recreation programs and other supportive spaces.

The co-housing component of the funding is the most cost-effective way of providing housing and supporting the project. The focus is on providing housing that is not expensive to rent and provides an affordable option for families to live close to the city.

Since its inception, the fund has helped support approximately 60 residential projects in the greater Vancouver area.

The projects are a mix of co-housing, housing, workshops and other supportive spaces.

Some of the projects in the fund are co-habitation projects. The focus is on creating housing for individuals on the spectrum of poverty, such as Aboriginal families, working individuals, or seniors.

The co-housing component of the funding is the most cost-effective way of providing housing and supporting the project. The focus is on providing housing that is not expensive to rent and provides an affordable option for families to live close to the city.

The co-housing component of the funding is supported by three different types of grants.
