There is multi-year plan to build much-needed new homes within First Nations communities across Canada. This will provide a better quality of life and health for people.

Within the long-term plan there remains an urgent need to improve the conditions of the existing housing in communities, while awaiting newly constructed homes to replace them. In addition, wellness and health centers play a significant role in First Nations communities. Schools, day cares, senior centers are all of consideration when it comes to members health. We start with Healthy Homes!

Cleaning the air, killing germs, removing contaminants within homes and community buildings is required – right now! This includes moulds on surfaces, in the air, as well as cleaning the heating ducts (and/or HVAC) to eliminate odours and improve health conditions.

To date, there have been challenges in communities to have this work done effectively, consistently and at a reasonable cost.

Foster First Solutions has a Services Team of experts to quantify and qualify the much-needed work by contractors. We will invite remediation/clean up companies to better understand what the needs are for First Nations communities – educate them on sensitivity, cultural awareness, and values of the First Nations people.

The work will be priced according to size and other requirements. Contractors will be chosen that meet or exceed those requirements.

In addition to overseeing the cleaning of homes in communities, the team will assure that local community members – students too – are able to find employment as part of the pre and post treatment processes. Raising awareness and providing education on managing and maintaining environments to maintain healthy air quality will be provided to those interested – old and young alike.


A Team of experienced, knowledgeable people prepared to dig in to provide a much-needed selection process to create and maintain Healthy Homes!

Her input in the due diligence for the selection and vetting of the best remediators available, is also much needed.
