Rental housing & waitlist

Through the Seabird Island Band’s Housing program we are able to provide our Band Members with affordable housing on-reserve.

Becoming a renter

We offer on-reserve rental housing to Band Members. Each housing unit varies in size from single person to four bedroom rentals (both attached apartment style housing and detached housing is available).

All units are constructed internally through Public Works, utilizing Fist Nations staff and outside contractors for a small number of services. Homes are continually built to meet the growing needs of the community. In order to be added to the waitlist, clients must complete a Housing Application form.

Contact us to talk about debt arrears, maintenance issues, renovation requests, policies, and to apply for on-reserve housing.

Curbside garbage, recycling & compost collection

Collection days are scheduled for every Monday between 8:00am – 12:00pm.
