Housing is essential for healthy and resilient communities. Through our work with Basin groups and communities, we aim to strengthen local and regional efforts to ensure residents have access to housing that meets their needs.

The Trust works in partnership with all levels of government and local organizations to create more affordable homes to help address the availability of housing in the Basin.

The Trust supports a variety of housing needs and approaches in the Basin including, proposal development support, providing capital grants, funding for energy retrofits and renewable energy generation, all while creating jobs and training opportunities.

Since 2015 the Trust has…

  • provided $47.2 million in funding to support housing initiatives
  • supported upgrades to 1,149 affordable housing units to increase their energy efficiency
  • supported the creation of 1,109 new affordable housing units
