TOOLS FOR CHANGE



ABSCAN will support you in the achievement of your projects large and small

At ABSCAN, we firmly believe that home ownership is key to resolving the current housing crisis. The purpose of our “loan and tools for change” approach is to encourage the development of a continuum of housing choices where the community and the members share the initiative and the responsibility for decisions and financing, based on their priorities, needs and means. Communities and members need access to loans on the basis of their credit strength and the value of homes rather than the ministerial or First Nation guarantees currently required by commercial bankers.


What we offer

Support for communities to design and implement homeownership policies; assistance in exploring solutions to increase the borrowing capacity of creditworthy individuals without guarantees from the First Nation; assistance in developing a local housing market and an incentives structure to support interest in private homeownership.
