At Namerind, our mission is to provide safe, affordable, quality housing and economic development opportunities for Indigenous People.

At Namerind we have created a new model for affordable housing. Our organization is deeply committed to supporting our community by providing those in need with affordable housing, but also by providing other services and prioritizing our work in environmental sustainability. By diversifying our revenue stream to include projects like our retail mall and pharmacy, we have been able to move towards our goal of becoming entirely financially self-sustaining, while providing much needed spaces and service to our community. One hundred percent of profits from all of our projects and partnerships are reinvested into affordable housing in Regina.

In 1977, we determined a great need for affordable housing for Indigenous people. Since then, that goal has led us on a journey that now includes so much more than just a roof over the head of our tenants. We are giving opportunity back to the Indigenous community – the opportunity to create jobs, to create wealth, and to create a sense of ownership.

We have created
a new model
for affordable
housing.
We focus on the importance of each staff member as an integral part of this team; First Nations, Métis, Non-Native, Visible Minority, women in non-traditional roles – it is important to us to include all those in the Indigenous community. Our staff provides a support network not only to our tenants, but also to the contractors and trades people who work so hard to keep our holdings in good repair.

We have also created community partnerships to benefit the broader Regina community. I invite you to explore our website and contact our office with any questions, or to get involved in this important work. Together, we believe, we can provide safe, affordable, self-sustained housing to all those in need while protecting our environment for generations to come.
