Housing Internship for Indigenous Youth (HIIY)

The FNHPA will offer Course 100 of the First Nations Housing Professionals Program to interested HIIY interns that meet the entry requirements. Tuition for 9 participants in Course 100, as well as one-year of membership with FNHPA is funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

Prior to the course start date, sponsors will be provided with information on this program through a virtual call with Instructor, Roxanne Harper taking place on July 31st 2023.

Interns (and their sponsors) who have been accepted into the FNHP HIIY Intern Program Course 100 will participate in a virtual call on August 4th, 2023 to learn about and begin working on the Readiness Assignment which is due September 8th, 2023. This Readiness Assignment will be used to improve understanding of the history of housing in the sponsor’s community. This assignment will also provide writing assistance, and other valuable items to support future assignment development.

After the Readiness Assignment is completed and sent in, students can begin their online course (FNHP 100: First Nations Housing and Infrastructure) on September 11th, 2023.

This course runs for 12 weeks and ends on December 10th, 2023. It requires Interns to spend 3-7 hours per week on coursework, and have consent and support from their employers and sponsors.
