BC Indigenous housing to receive $12.8 million boost from Federal Government

The federal government has announced $12.8 million in funding through the Affordable Housing Fund (AHF) to support the repair and preservation of 855 homes for Indigenous residents in British Columbia. The announcement was made by MP Hedy Fry at the Helping Spirit Lodge Society in Vancouver, on behalf of the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities, alongside Blake Scott, board vice-president at the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA) and Olivia Jim, executive director at Helping Spirit Lodge Society.

 

The AHMA, which manages most off-reserve Indigenous housing in BC, will administer the funds, supporting over 10,000 Indigenous individuals and families across the province. AHMA offers a range of services including affordable housing, homeless shelters, and mental health programs. This initiative is part of the broader National Housing Strategy aimed at improving housing for those in need.
