Ottawa Community Housing’s Mikinàk Community

Deadline: October 31, 2023


Honourarium: $5,000/mural


Project Background


Ottawa Community Housing’s Mikinàk Community is the newest affordable housing development in Ottawa. Located in Wateridge Village, the Mikinàk community will offer 271 units in three buildings, including studio, one, two, and three-bedroom apartments with different levels of affordability.

Please see for more information on Ottawa Community Housing and the Mikinàk Project.



In consultation with the Algonquins of Ontario, Ottawa Community Housing is seeking indigenous artists to commission up to three (3) murals for the newly constructed buildings at our Mikinàk development. The murals will be part of multiple commemorative elements integrated into the project creating an opportunity for dialogue and learning for the tenants and overall community, paying respect to the ancestral and unceded territory of the Algonquin Nation, where the development is located.

The project will also support the overall Wateridge Village commemoration program implemented by the Canada Lands Corporation (CLC). CLC’s commemoration program guides how Wateridge Village/Villages des Riverains is recognizing Algonquin, military, francophonie, and other histories in this ongoing development. The commemoration program has been developed by Canada Lands Company in partnership with the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) and with support from ERA Architects Inc., the Department of Words & Deeds, and the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.More information and additional supporting documents including the Project Context Outreach Summary Handbook, are available at the links below:
