Communities need people & people need homes

As one of Newfoundland and Labrador’s first rural housing associations, Otter Housing Association (OHA), addresses houselessness within a rural context—a unique phenomena and consequence of a successful tourism industry on the Bonavista Peninsula.

Our mandate is to promote access to green affordable housing through planning, development, construction and operation within Newfoundland and Labrador’s rural communities.

Land Acknowledgement

OHA respectfully acknowledges the land on which we gather and alter as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk. We acknowledge the island of Ktaqmkuk as the unceded, traditional territory of the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq and acknowledge Labrador as the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Innu of Nitassinan, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut. We strive for respectful partnerships with all peoples of this province as we search for collective healing and true reconciliation to honour this beautiful land together. We open our hearts and minds to the past and commit ourselves to working in a spirit of truth and reconciliation to make a better future for all.
