Aqanttanam Housing Society owns 16 houses and 10 duplexes purchased under the Rural Native Housing program from 1992 through 1994. These properties are rented to indigenous families under a rent geared to income subsidized formula under an Operating Agreement with BC Housing.
In March 2007, AHS purchased a 12-unit apartment block under the Provincial Homeless Initiative. There are 10 two-bedroom and 2 one-bedroom units which are partially subsidized to low income families and individuals who are homeless or at high risk of becoming homeless.
In May 2008, we purchased an 18 unit three-bedroom townhouse complex under the Provincial Homeless Initiative. We house low income families who are homeless or at high risk of becoming homeless.

In February 2018, we purchased a property on the corner of 6th Street NW and Hurry Ave in Slaterville. The property has an existing building leased to the House of Hope and KKCFSS Early Years Program.
Currently under construction on the property is a new 39-unit apartment building that will contain 24 one-bedroom, 12 two-bedroom and 3 three-bedroom units. Construction is expected to be completed around November 2020 and will house low-income individuals and families under a rent geared to income formula.
Funding was approved by BC Housing under the Indigenous Housing Fund with a generous contribution from Columbia Basin Trust.
