Pioneers all work together to build private houses and apartment blocks. They are given a loan for any materials they need. Once the pioneers have their own private houses, they no longer need to do communal work. They can work outside the community and/or set up businesses for the pioneer community.

Different phases of pioneers
  • new arrivals live communally and build communal facilities and private homes for their community. 
  • settled pioneers of a community work their own land and work their own businesses.
  • new tax paying Canadian citizens have full ownership rights to the land they pioneered.
