North, Policy Hackathons

Recommendations on Northern Housing

On May 14-16, 2019 The Gordon Foundation convened their third Northern Policy Hackathon (NPH) in Inuvik, Northwest Territories. The third Hackathon brought together northerners from across the three territories and Inuit Nunangat to develop innovative policy recommendations regarding Northern Housing.

Participants came from a wide array of backgrounds, including a Gwich’in elder, landlords, community members, business owners, the non-profit sector, academic institutions, municipal, territorial, regional, Indigenous leadership, and the federal government.

These are the recommendations from that event.
