First Nations International Solutions
We are always eager to learn from good examples locally and internationally, and this year Shelter WA were delighted to welcome Margaret Pfoh, CEO of The Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) which is an Indigenous not for profit housing authority based in Vancouver Canada. AHMA oversees Aboriginal Housing providers, supports the development of new housing for Aboriginal people, manages Urban and Rural Housing portfolios and undertakes capacity development through training, consulting and advising member societies.
AHMA was created for Indigenous Peoples by Indigenous Peoples and is the first Indigenous Housing Authority in Canada. Margaret Pfoh will join us via Zoom to talk about their work and the importance of their community leading and driving their housing solutions.
This session was facilitated by Mr Gordon Cole and Ms Lisa Kazalac who reflected on how the Canadian approach could drive positive change in Western Australia.
