Partnering with AHMA
BC Housing works in partnership with the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) to achieve our common goal of self-management, self-reliance and self-sufficiency in the provision of safe, affordable housing for Aboriginal people.
AHMA was formed in 1995 and is a province-wide social housing management agency. This Aboriginal management model for social housing is the first of its kind in Canada.
In 2012, under the B.C. Aboriginal Social Housing Management Agreement, administration of all Aboriginal social housing including emergency shelters and the Aboriginal Homeless Outreach Program was transferred from BC Housing to AHMA.
AHMA administers subsidy payments and operating agreements for 40 Aboriginal non-profit housing providers. More than 4,000 Aboriginal units have been transferred to AHMA.
