ACTC’s Pre-Fabricated Homes Draw More Interest

The Saskatchewan Research Council is partnering up with two of the province’s tribal councils in an effort to provide warmer houses for northerners.


The research council is staging an open-house/workshop with the Agency Chiefs Tribal Council near Big River today to raise awareness about the ACTC’s pre-fabricated housing units.


SRC spokesman Rob Dumont says his group is very impressed with the Agency Chiefs’ housing units, which feature state-of-the-art ventilation systems and upgraded insulation — all at a cost of just $60,000.


Dumont says the Prince Albert Grand Council is another group they’ve been in talks with about the homes, and some of the methods that might be adopted for their housing needs.


He says the SRC hopes to assist the two groups with their home-building in time for the adoption of the Kyoto Accord.
