Reserve residences are a special category of apartment community. They offer a wide variety of amenities to help residents feel at home and provide a comfortable place to live.
There are many types of residential communities that fall into this category including student housing, military housing and luxury apartments. In some cases, a reserve can even be located within a city.
In a number of cities, urban Indian reserves are becoming more common. They are gaining popularity because of their ability to serve as a gateway into the city, and because they allow First Nations people to retain a connection with their heritage while living in an urban environment.
While living on a reserve can be beneficial to many Indigenous peoples, there are also some concerns about the practice. For example, while a reserve can provide a sense of security and protect a person’s identity, the lack of access to services such as health care can make living on a reserve a challenge.
For a variety of reasons, the majority of First Nations peoples are not satisfied with living on a reserve. Some First Nations peoples believe that the quality of life on a reserve is not worth it, while others argue that there are too many restrictions and that there are better alternatives.
Fortunately, a growing number of Aboriginal peoples are choosing to live in city settings and they are reaping the benefits. In fact, they have higher educational levels, better job opportunities and more income than their on-reserve counterparts.
The main reason for this difference is that on-reserve communities often have to deal with more restrictions than off-reserve communities when it comes to building and developing their land. For instance, government rights-of-way such as power transmission lines, railways and highways frequently intersect reserve lands, which cuts down on useable space.
Another major concern is the availability of adequate housing for on-reserve families. Although First Nations have the right to build their own homes on reserve lands, there are often restrictions on construction and a shortage of suitable building materials in their regions.
In order to ensure that they are able to provide their residents with the best possible housing, the governments of Canada and the provinces have created a series of guidelines and policies. These include the development of new on-reserve communities, the protection of Indigenous and northern land and water resources, a duty to consult, and the provision of housing assistance.
