M'akola Housing Society

To improve living conditions for Aboriginal families while encouraging and reinforcing traditional practices and cultural beliefs.

M'akola Housing - Hope CentreOur Impact Why We Exist

The Society was originally established to provide safe, affordable housing for families of Aboriginal ancestry who were in core need of housing in urban centres on Vancouver Island. Since that time the Society and its mandate have expanded into what is now the M’akola Group of Societies.

Our Story What We Do

The Society was originally established to provide safe, affordable housing for families of First Nations ancestry who were in core need of housing in urban centres on Vancouver Island. Since that time the Society and its mandate have expanded into what is now the M'akola Group of Societies, consisting of eight societies.

Vision: To provide homes* primarily for Aboriginal people, where they can have pride and feel connected to traditional values and a community (*"Homes" includes a range of residential programs and services, including those that provide appropriate care and support).

M'akola = "a safe place" (Coast Salish word)
