Indigenous Modular Housing

Indigenous Housing and Modular Construction

At Jandel Homes, we work collaboratively with First Nations, Inuit and Metis community leaders across Western Canada to create innovative solutions for modern, healthful and sustainable housing. We understand that trust and respect are earned, and over our 45-year history, we have created many long-lasting relationships with our Aboriginal business partners. Together, we have been building safe and secure housing since 1974.

Working With Your Council In Flexible New Ways

Jandel Homes has worked on a number of past housing projects with First Nations in order to provide housing to their communities. We believe in being flexible when it comes to determining the right housing strategy.

Our end goal is the same – help you and your family make the home you choose your very own. That can mean finding the best solution for your community by working directly with your Housing Manager, Chief, or Council; or working directly with each family. From sorting out details about the number of homes for your community and the purchasing process to helping individual families select options, upgrades, and decor  – we are there every step of the way.

Past First Nation Housing Projects

Relationship with The Land

Jandel understands the unique challenges and sensitivities required when operating on-reserve, in indigenous communities, traditional territories and often in remote locations.

Building housing for indigenous people is no different in terms of the housing conditions or the need for affordable housing with consideration for appropriate living spaces. But, it does require an understanding and respect for the relationship with the land. Our housing solutions and construction process is less invasive than site building; modular construction results in a 43% reduction in CO2 emissions.

Green Building Practices. Energy Efficient Homes.

Our construction process is resource efficient, minimizing waste and energy consumption during the build, which reduces our carbon footprint.

Our homes are low maintenance and energy efficient, which reduces upkeep requirements, replacement and energy costs, while protecting the environment.

Increased Financial Accessibility with many options for First Nations Housing Funding

There are many First Nations housing grants, financial planning resources and affordable financing programs available to Aboriginal Peoples, Metis, and First Nations communities, including:

Our Trades or Yours

We are happy to offer an affordable, turn-key solution for Aboriginal Peoples, First nations and Metis housing or commercial building requirements. Jandel’s full-service Construction Team can complete both large and small projects. We understand that we share a social responsibility to create opportunities for employment for our First Nations’ partners by using local tradespeople and businesses on your project, whenever possible. Alternatively, we can also simply supply the house and your tradespeople can do the rest.
