Lotwenterprise reports that modular builder Wincrief Homes of Kenora, Ontario, Canada received its certification from the Canadian Standards Association to supply municipalities and First Nation peoples with modular homes. Unlike the company’s ready-to-move (RTM) homes, modular homes are eligible for financing through banks. A subsidiary of Wincrief Forestry Products, the certification ensures the lumber, electrical and plumbing materials, mechanical work and moisture barriers all meet national standards. MHProNews.com has learned Wincrief Forestry is a partnership between Wabaseemoong First Nation (White Dog) and Moncrief Construction, owned 51 percent by First Nation.
