Issues, Impediments and Opportunities to Using Designated Lands On-Reserve for Affordable Housing
Section 89 (1) of the Indian Act has restricted the use of on-reserve land and limited the ways in which an individual or Band Council can access funds for housing because the asset is not available to the lender as security for the loan provided. The process of designation allows First Nations to work around these restrictions, but the process is long and complex. This research project identifies the differences between the designation process under the Indian Act and the process under the First Nations Land Management Act (FNLMA), and compares the advantages and disadvantages of the land methods of both systems.
