Description:The construction and maintenance of affordable, quality housing is a priority for First Nations across Canada. As First Nations regain increased control over governance and administration of their own affairs, housing managers take on increased responsibility for all elements of First Nations housing programs. The role of housing manager is complex, demanding and rapidly changing. The skills of on-reserve housing managers have a direct impact on the health of families and communities. It is a key, high profile role, which comes with an enormous opportunity to make a real and lasting difference in communities across Canada.

The First Nations Housing Manager Certificate Program will train housing managers to assist communities to benefit from affordable, healthy, high quality, and well-maintained housing. The program provides learners with the opportunity to develop management skills through a combination of theory and practical application. The interactive approach to learning new skills encourages participants to test new ideas, fine tune relevant skills and share experiences and expertise with other housing managers in a supportive learning environment.
