M'akola Housing Society
The Victoria Native Indian Housing Society was incorporated on February
6, 1984 as a non-profit society; the name was changed to the M'akola Housing
Society on April 5, 1988. 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.
The Vision of the M’akola Group of Societies is:

The Mission of the M’akola Group of Societies is:
To provide affordable and appropriate homes primarily for Aboriginal people on Vancouver Island, and to enhance community partnerships.
