Canada and BC help create new Aboriginal housing


A $5-million federal and provincial investment in Aboriginal housing initiative will create housing for Aboriginals in need within BC. 

Through the Canada-British Columbia Agreement for Investment in Affordable Housing 2011-2014, the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia are providing the combined investment of $5 million under the Aboriginal Housing Initiative to create affordable rental housing projects with a focus on Aboriginal clients across B.C. The Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) has also partnered with the Province to assist in the evaluation process and oversee the management and operations of the Aboriginal housing projects.
