The First Canadian Non-Profit Indigenous Housing Authority
AHMA is an umbrella organization composed of 41 Members that are each Indigenous Housing providers. Our members represent over 5000 Indigenous families living in urban, rural and northern regions of British Columbia. We are direct partners with the provincial government and a leading voice that supports, advocates and responds to the needs of our Indigenous Housing Providers and the Indigenous communities they serve.
AHMA is the first Indigenous Housing Authority in Canada and only second in the world and we were created for Indigenous communities by Indigenous communities.
