The federal government has spent $20 million to help communities in the northern Manitoba First Nation deal with an influx of foreign and domestic migrants.
The money was earmarked for projects such as building schools, a new health clinic and a community centre.
In an interview on CBC News Network’s Power & Politics, First Nation Chief Chief John Dabiri said he and his community were hoping to use the funds to buy a new home.
“Our home is going to be here for the long haul,” Dabir said.
But when it comes to buying a home, there are plenty of hurdles, he said.
For instance, he was unable to purchase a home until the new school was built and the community’s new community centre opened.
Dabiri and other First Nations have been working to secure housing, particularly in the capital city of Winnipeg.
The Winnipeg Regional Municipality is offering $20,000 to any First Nation or community that can secure housing in their community.
It is estimated that around 500 First Nations and more than 3,000 people are homeless in Winnipeg.
In recent months, Winnipeg has seen a spike in migrant and foreign violence and a surge in new arrivals.
In April, a group of First Nations protesters held a sit-in on the Manitoba-Canada border.
They demanded a meeting with Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister and federal officials.
Pallister refused to meet with the protesters.
In response, First Nations communities have started calling on the federal government to help address the growing homelessness problem in their communities.
Last month, the Winnipeg Police Service said it had received hundreds of calls for service related to domestic violence in the first eight months of the year.
