Seabird Island Sustainable Community
Demonstration Project

The project introduces environmentally healthy and energy efficient construction methods and products to builders and communities across Canada. The project has garnered Canada wide attention for its low tec approach.

The Seabird Island First Nation Sustainable Demonstration Project is considered to be the first on-reserve housing project of its kind in the world. Built by British Columbia's Seabird Island First Nation community, in partnership with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, this environmentally sensitive project is based on Healthy Housing? and Flex Housing? concepts. It also utilizes a passive solar roof, wind generators and a shallow type of geo-thermal energy to supplement conventional electricity. The Seabird Island Project is being regarded as a flagship project for the future of housing.
