Keeper of My Home Learning Resource

First Nation teaching materials and online games about housing.


Keeper of My Home is a free resource for educators that teaches students about caring for their home and housing health and safety. The classroom content and e-learning games are for First Nation students from kindergarten to grade 12 who go to on-reserve schools. It’s designed for teachers, however facilitators outside of the traditional classroom environment can use it too.

Teaching children and youth about housing can help improve economic and social conditions. It can bring about positive change through a bottom-up approach. This happens as youth become housing champions and teach their families and communities about housing safety and health issues.

The program is built around the following 4 themes:

  1. Traditional teaching of the community
  2. First Nation housing topics
  3. Home maintenance
  4. Home safety
