Métis Nation of Alberta Announces New Housing Programs for its Citizens

“If we can assist families with a down payment, home repair or rental supplement, this is very valuable in providing affordable, culturally appropriate and sustainable solutions for our citizens.”


After years of negotiations and planning with multiple levels of government, the Métis Nation of Alberta’s housing branch, Métis Capital Housing Corporation, has launched four new programs.

They are designed to support Métis families and students in need of rental supports, home repairs as well as a down payment assistance program.

Métis Nation of Alberta citizens will be able to apply for:


- Down Payment Assistance Program, providing up to 5% down payment to a maximum amount of $20,000.00 per approved applicant.

-  Home Repair Program, providing a maximum of $20,000.00 per approved applicant.

-  Rental Supplement Program, paying up to $5400.00 per year, for a maximum of 24 months.

-  Rental Supplement Program for Students, paying up to $2400.00 per year, per approved applicant.
