Housing Development

Matachewan FN Administration Building

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.

Matachewan First Nation also provides support and assistance to community members concerning on-reserve housing issues.

Community members interested in First Nation Housing, should contact the First Nation administration office for more information.

The Public Works department of Matachewan First Nation handles regular servicing of public buildings, service management of local infrastructure and utilities and regular road repair and maintenance.
