An international online Indigenous housing portal will be launched at the World Indigenous Housing Conference (WIHC) in Canada this June.
The portal will be a web-based repository for knowledge on Indigenous housing best practices that will help build capacity around the world.
Leaders in Indigenous housing will be able to access virtually any type of online content on the new website, such as research documents, a searchable database, discussion forum, blogs, multimedia content, email, job postings, social media, event calendar, photo galleries and RSS news feeds.
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) and the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) are working with Canada's First Nations Technology Council to develop the new portal.
'We're excited about partnering with AANDC to create a new website that will connect Indigenous housing and government leaders from around the world well beyond the conference,' said Andrew Leach, 2012 WIHC Director and Chief Executive Officer of AHMA.
