Construction and trades readiness project

Construction and Trades Readiness Program

DATE: Spring/Summer 2021

As part of the Indigenous Housing Initiative, this exciting program offers 24 weeks of instruction/training to eight members of our community who will be building its first tiny home! The program consists of 12 weeks of academic upgrading including safety tickets and PPE and 12 weeks of hands-on construction training.

In 2021, the students constructed a tiny home, approximately 660 square feet, featuring a kitchen, living space, one bathroom, one bedroom, and a mechanical/laundry room.
