Realization of a Community Vision.
Tzeachten First Nation opened a 23-unit rental housing development on the Tzeachten First Nation reserve, near Chilliwack in June 2022.
The Province provided approximately $2.5 million to the project through the Building BC: Community Housing Fund, while the First Nations Finance Authority provided about $5.5 million in low-cost construction financing. An additional provincial grant of approximately $300,000 was provided through the Investment in Housing Innovation Fund.
The housing will be operated by the Property and Public Works department of Tzeachten First Nation, which has 18 years of experience managing housing and commercial buildings for the community.
