Housing Development

In 2003, Matachewan First Nation started construction of a new subdivision for the community which added ten new modern homes for the community.  The subdivision included the construction of a new two kilometer road on the northeastern end of the community.  The new development included the construction of a new water treatment plant which was completed in the spring of 2004.

The added development allowed for the construction of new homes but also for attracting service organization to setup their own offices in the community.  The new space and infrastructure has allowed Nishnawbe-Aski Police Services (NAPS) to base their offices in the community at the new subdivision and have Aboriginal officers based in the community.
