Sustainable Housing Department
Sustainable Housing provides On-Reserve housing services for members in a sustainable manner. This includes providing the infrastructure, adding to the housing stock, and managing rental accommodation.
In recent years it has also taken on responsibility for the $50 million Mould Remediation Program. This program administers the renovation or replacement of virtually every home on the Reserve. The rate of respiratory disease was so high amongst Cowichans, primarily as a result of mould-infested homes, that a public health emergency was declared in 1998.
