NWT Housing Corporation Renewal: Partnerships

The NWTHC has been criticized for a perceived failure to collaborate with other partners to maximize housing-related opportunities in the NWT.  There is a perception that the NWTHC is competing instead of collaborating with Indigenous Governments, and the NWTHC’s relationship with federal government departments requires revitalization. Improving communication at all stages will be critical to building these partnerships and in some cases, correcting erroneous perceptions


  • Improve collaboration with Indigenous governments
  • Develop enhanced partnership with the federal government
  • Support non-governmental organizations
  • Work with industry, especially Northern businesses, to play a greater role in housing
  • Partner with academia to drive research and innovation
