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.
Home Ownership Program
The Affordable Home Ownership Program (AHOP) is targeted to Aboriginal people who intend to purchase a home in the GTA as their Principal Residence.
The program provides loans of up to $30,000 to qualifying Canadian Aboriginal people to assist with a downpayment to purchase a home off-reserve in the GTA.
