The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC) is soliciting proposals for the building of tiny homes in support of Indigenous communities in Saskatchewan.
The SATCC has received funding to build a minimum of ten tiny homes. The SATCC will facilitate the funding and development of the initiative to provide skilled trades training opportunities and housing options within Indigenous communities. Benefits will include new housing opportunities while raising awareness of apprenticeship and the skilled trades among Indigenous peoples in Saskatchewan; give Indigenous apprentices the tools and knowledge to explore opportunities in the skilled trades through hands-on learning; and encourage Indigenous apprentices to pursue careers in the skilled trades.
The SATCC invites Indigenous stakeholders such as economic development authorities, housing agencies/authorities, Indigenous communities, and/or employers to apply for potential funding for the building of tiny houses, or similar housing models.
Who may qualify to participate?
- Indigenous economic development agencies
- Indigenous housing corporations
- First Nation Bands or similar established Indigenous entities
- Partner agencies, both Indigenous and non-Indigenous, to partner with communities and participants
Application closing date is August 16, 2021
Projects must conclude before March 31, 2022
