Aims and Objectives

  • To promote the economic and social welfare of persons of Native descent;
  • To establish, maintain and operate low-income housing;
  • To inform the public of the need for low-income housing.

Present Programs and Explanations

Six units were purchased and subsidized by Thunder Bay District Housing Authority. This program is administrated by both the Thunder Bay District Housing Authority and the Native Housing Program. Thunder Bay District Housing submits information about two qualified applicants to the Housing office for selection of a tenant when a unit becomes available under this project. They also establish the tenants' rent which is based on a percentage of their gross monthly income.

Urban Native Housing Program

Persons of native Ancestry routinely face discrimination when searching for rental accommodations in urban centers and many of them end up living in substandard, unsafe dwellings. In response to this discrimination and in acknowledgement of its historic commitment to the Indigenous Peoples of Canada, the Federal Government created the Native component of Section 56.1 and 95 of the National Housing Act (the Urban Native Housing Program), allowing Native non-profit Corporations purchase and construct housing units to provide safe, affordable and decent housing to persons of Native ancestry.
