In recent years there has been an unprecedented focus on the housing crisis in the NWT.
The 19th Legislative Assembly made increasing the number of affordable homes and reducing NWT core housing need one of its priorities, and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) Mandate for 2019-2023 includes several actions related to housing.
Over the past five years, a large volume of reports, recommendations, and consultations have occurred. This strategy acknowledges and addresses the need for change in the Northwest Territories Housing Corporation that was articulated in these recommendations. This strategy builds on the successes of the NWTHC while presenting practical actions that set the stage for future success.
