Betty Aslin

The Aboriginal Housing Committee –

British Columbia (AHC-BC) would like to

acknowledge and respect Betty Aslin

who passed away on July 26, 2010. AHC-BC provides

advice on operations and strategies to CMHC,

INAC and BC First Nations to improve First Nations

on-reserve housing. AHC-BC has tackled many signifi

cant housing issues and Betty was an important

member of AHC-BC who brought a professional

community housing perspective.

Betty is one of a small group who was truly an

expert at her career. She tackled the diffi cult issues

of on-reserve housing with stubborn determination

and admirable intelligence. Betty was a strong and

committed woman who gave her personal time

and resources to support the work of AHC-BC.

She brought a straight forward and enthusiastic

approach to her work with AHC-BC. On-reserve

housing has lost an important advocate and all of us

who are trying to improve on-reserve housing will

miss her.

On behalf of AHC-BC and all those involved in

on-reserve housing in British Columbia we thank

Betty Aslin and offer our deepest condolences to

Betty’s family and friends. Based on our experience

at AHC-BC we can only imagine the richness and

strength that she must have brought to all others

and we are sure that she will be missed in her other

circles as well.
