WSP Sponsors Innovative, Sustainable Indigenous Housing Design through Competition

 

WSP has a strong record of working alongside Indigenous communities in Canada. This year WSP is proudly sponsoring an Indigenous housing design competition run by Architects Without Borders.

Canadian Indigenous communities face a number of issues when it comes to housing. Canada’s diverse landscapes, challenging climate, remote communities, and high housing demand are just some of the challenges encountered by those living on reserves and settlements. WSP is supporting a contest launched by Architects Without Borders to change the status quo.

"We're proud to support Architects Without Borders and sponsor their Indigenous Housing Design Competition. Indeed, as an issue that touches every Canadian, WSP is best-placed to go further and offer its time and expertise to this great cause,” commented Gareth Newlands, WSP’s National Vice President, Business Development, Buildings.
