2020 National Housing and Infrastructure Forum and Tradeshow
March 10 - March 12
The forum will host plenary sessions and interactive workshops on the long-term approach for
First Nations Housing and related Infrastructure for First Nations and for First Nations members
who live in urban, rural, and northern areas. We will also focus on the operations and maintenance
(O&M) with an emphasis on adopting an Asset Management Planning (AMP) approach. The forum will
provide space for First Nations to share successes in instituting AMP as a new way of tracking O&M.

Providers, and individuals who are working in the field of housing management, operations and
maintenance, and infrastructure management.

The forum is an opportunity to provide your input on the implementation of the First Nations
National Housing and related Infrastructure Strategy which is guided solely by the aim of
ensuring that all First Nations members living in or away from their First Nations will have
access to housing that suits their needs. Your input and recommendations will support the
transfer of authority over housing and related infrastructure to First Nations care, control
and management. Information on Asset Management Planning activity by First Nations,
service providers and industry will be showcased.

processes and infrastructure services.
