Keeper of My Home

Keeper of My Home is a digital educational resource co-developed by Indigenous peoples, for Indigenous peoples, with support from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation. It teaches children and young people about caring for a home and focuses on housing health and safety.

Teaching children and youth about housing can help improve economic and social conditions. It can bring about positive change through a bottom-up approach. This happens as youth become housing champions and teach their families and communities about housing safety and health issues.
