Providing Quality Housing Options for Our Citizens

The Nisichawayasihk Housing Authority (NHA) works to ensure adequate, quality housing for the residents of Nelson House, Manitoba (Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation). Homes are made available for ownership or as rental homes on land leased from the Nation. NHA works to ensure all homes are built to National standards. We also offer Citizens training/education and make sure they are aware of roles and responsibilities as tenants. Home repairs, inspections and renovations are also managed so they can be completed in a timely manner. We jointly work with the community's public works, road, sewer and water services and government to provide effective quality infrastructure and housing.
