AHMA believes our core values must have an active influence and that our staff and management live by them in their decision-making within-and as much as possible-outside of the organization.

Our Mission

We will work to ensure all Aboriginal people in British Columbia have access to safe, secure, and affordable housing, through a culturally sensitive housing authority that supports, inspires, and responds to the needs of Aboriginal communities and Aboriginal housing providers in British Columbia.

Indigenous peoples have the right to determine and develop priorities and strategies for exercising their right to development. In particular, Indigenous peoples have the right to be actively involved in developing and determining health, housing and other economicand social programmes affecting them and, as far as possible, to administer such programmes through their own institutions.
