Finch Match My Donation Spotlight: The Imagine Build

This week's spotlight Finch Match My Donation is the

The Imagine Build

Happy's Place

The Imagine Build works closely with Oneida Nation of the Thames to build bridges between communities and build accessible homes for families. Section 89(1) of the Indian Act protects property on reserves so it cannot be mortgaged and used as collateral by a non-First Nation person. Therefore, the process is designed so it is very difficult to own your own home if you are living on a Settlement or Reservation. The Imagine Build is a way forward to create a new process built from dignity, understanding and success.

"“You Can Build A House, Not A Home. It Is My Vision To Begin The Long Overdue Process Of Bringing Our People Home."

- Elected Chief, Adrian Chrisjohn.
