Partnership Development Grant
Tuesday May 29, 2018 | Toronto
The together design lab is excited following the announcement of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Partnership Development Grant to Dr. Shelagh McCartney, co-applicant Dr. Janice Barry and project partners Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN), Michael McKay, Director of Housing and Infrastructure at NAN, Matawa First Nations Management, Windigo First Nations Council, and Eabametoong First Nation.
The project, Whose Metrics? Creating community-based indicators to reimagine First Nations housing systems, is a collaborative effort bringing together communities to develop their own housing measures. Community-determined measures of success will reflect the values, goals, aspirations and lived experiences of each community and will be used to support self-determination of housing systems.
