OUR VISION FOR NORTHERN HOUSING IS FOR EVERY FAMILY TO HAVE A HOME THAT IS HEALTHY, WELL-CONSTRUCTED, WELL-MAINTAINED AND ENERGY EFFICIENT.
A GOOD HOUSING STRATEGY IS COMPOSED OF PARTNERSHIPS, WHICH BUILD CAPACITY AS WELL AS HOMES, USING AS MANY LOCAL MATERIALS AS IS ECOLOGICALLY OR ECONOMICALLY PRACTICAL.
Frontiers Foundation is a non-profit aboriginal voluntary service organization that promotes the advancement of economically and socially disadvantaged communities. Through the Operation Beaver Program, with volunteers from across the globe, we work with aboriginal communities to provide affordable housing and improvements in education. With the support of government and charitable donations, both from the private sector and individuals, we operate within Canadian borders, and overseas.
Since 1964 Frontiers Foundation has assisted northern communities to find cost effective housing solutions and has built or renovated over 2400 houses and public buildings in First Nation and off-reserve northern communities, often maximizing the use of local materials and labour.
Our operating mandate in Manitoba is to work with communities to increase capacity to build, maintain and manage their housing stock.
