Another local Indigenous group has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Wood Buffalo Housing.
The McMurray Métis is the fourth to sign the agreement in an effort to approve housing conditions and find long-term sustainable solutions that will benefit the community.
In a release, President Gail Gallupe says they’ll complete a housing needs assessment to address gaps in program and service delivery.
“Together we will complete our housing needs assessment and bring these issues forward to the municipality, the province, and other groups associated with safe and affordable housing for the Métis community.”
An affordable housing action plan is now being developed, which will outline short and long-term actions required to address affordable housing concerns.
