The article reports that the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) is arming itself to lobby federal government ministers for increased and improved funding of housing accommodations for First Nations people. Carl Joseph Johnson, AFN senior housing consultant, says that the housing secretariat of the AFN, formed several months ago, has been gathering data and now estimates the number of units needed immediately to be at least 70,000 throughout the country, both on and off reserve. Statistics-gathering organizations such as Census Canada and Indian and Northern Affairs admit that they don't know exactly how many First Nations people are out there or how many houses are out there.
