  • ABORIGINAL HOUSING

    GTA Aboriginal Housing Program

    The GTA Aboriginal Housing Program began when Miziwe Biik, in partnership with other Aboriginal groups, undertook an extensive consultation process in the GTA to determine how best to utilize funds from a Federal Trust for off-reserve funding.   The final report  was submitted to the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MMAH) on June 2, 2008.

     

    MBDC successfully launched and delivered the Off-Reserve  Housing Trust Fund  AHT-funded Aboriginal Downpayment Loan Program (ADLP) and the Aboriginal Rental Program (ARP), in the GTA from 2009-2011.
