Capital & Infrastructure administers programs for the maintenance and construction of residential homes in Listuguj. There are three main housing programs, including:
- Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program (better known as RRAP)
- Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (section 95 subsidized rentals)
- Individual Ministerial Guarantees
In 2011, LMG initiated a pilot program for a new “one time” Agreement to construct ten new homes. This housing initiative included selection criteria and repayment conditions for the ten units.
A new policy agreement on Lease-to-Own Housing is being developed by the Directorate and will be available soon. The LMG also administers a Minor Repairs Program, which has strict administrative discretion because there is no specific allocation for such repairs.
