Capital Planning for Housing is the process of defining the new construction and renovation program for a community over a period of years. The process defines what, where, when, and the sources of funding, for all Housing capital projects.

The Capital Planning for Housing Workshop will address all areas of the capital planning process, and will discuss them in terms of the First Nation on reserve reality – not textbook cases out of a department manual. Where the capital funding comes from and when it is available will be thoroughly covered. Financial resource issues will be put in the context of the different funding arrangements that First Nations have with Indian Affairs. Associated subjects such as land base and lot availability will also be discussed. An actual capital planning exercise will be carried out to show how the different elements factor into the capital planning process. Workshop participants will return to their communities with Capital Planning insights, skills and tools that will help them create and maintain a successful capital housing program.
