Question 18-13(7): Update On Down Payment Program
Item 6: Oral Questions

Vince Steen Nunakput

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Housing, Mr. Arlooktoo, as well. It tends to be the same subject as my honourable colleague, Mr. O'Brien, was questioning on. Mr. Speaker, I wonder if the Minister could supply the House with a breakdown as to where all this money is going for this program. What particular regions? I know this is kind of a detailed question, but could the Minister supply the House with a breakdown as to exactly what regions are benefitting from this program and how much?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Several weeks after we introduced the program, we gave an update to MLAs on the status of those statistics and would be prepared to do that once again for all Members. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Perhaps the Minister could enlighten me as to exactly who was intended to benefit from this program, the range of people, who was this program directed at, low income people, new residents for the territories, who?

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. This program targeted all sorts of individuals including attracting new residents of the Northwest Territories, especially those that are moving up here or would like to move up here to work in the diamond mines, for example. We were concerned, partly, about the fly-in/fly-out workers and we would rather that they stayed up here to work here, pay taxes here, et cetera. We also wanted to give individuals from the north who have moved to other communities a chance to buy homes in those other communities. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would have to check the criteria on that, which I do not have. If there was one, it would be a minimal residency requirement. I will supply the proper information to the Member. Thank you.
