Who We Are

We are the first For Indigenous, By Indigenous housing authority established in Canada. AHMA members manage over 95% of all Indigenous housing units located off-reserve in BC and AHMA administers funds for almost 10,000 Indigenous individuals and families living in urban, rural, and northern parts of the province. We also advocate broadly for Indigenous housing, provide operational guidance, conduct research, support asset management, and much more.

AHMA members provide a spectrum of trauma-informed, culturally safe housing including affordable housing units, homeless shelters, transition homes, supportive housing, and assisted living facilities. Many of AHMA’s members also offer support services including homelessness prevention, parenting supports, mental health and addictions programs, complex care, and more. In terms of scale, AHMA members make up over one-third of Indigenous housing providers in Canada.

Together, we are taking back our inherent rights to self-determination and we invite you to participate.
