Answering the call from Elders in need: CUMFI building supports Métis people
April 23, 2021
Central Urban Métis Federation Inc. (CUMFI) identified years ago that there was a need in Saskatoon for culturally appropriate housing, says President Shirley Isbister. There were gaps in the availability of affordable, safe homes and in the cultural component of housing, where it’s administered by an Indigenous organization for Indigenous people, she said. Round Prairie Elders’ Lodge, a multi-unit residential building for Elders, was also born out of listening to the community.
