About Us

Métis Capital Housing Corporation (MCHC) provides affordable, quality homes to Alberta’s Métis and Aboriginal peoples. Wholly owned by Métis Nation of Alberta, MCHC serves residents based on the following principles:

  • We share the culture and values of the people we serve.
  • We understand how to meet their needs.
  • We treat every family and person fairly and with respect.
  • We work every day to improve the homes we offer.
  • We innovate to best deliver quality programs that provide sustainable, livable homes and improve our communities.


MCHC by the numbers

Along with our sister company, Métis Urban Housing Corporation, we are Canada’s largest provider of affordable housing for Métis and Aboriginals with:

  • More than 3,000 tenants
  • 800-plus housing units in 14 urban centres
  • 70 employees
  • 12 offices (head office and 11 branch offices)
  • 30-plus years of operations


Housing for the future

In coming years, all the homes we currently manage under the federal government’s subsidized mortgage program will join the vast inventory of housing already owned by the MCHC. This will bring new challenges, but also new opportunities to better serve our community.

Innovative and responsible business management and practices will help MCHC provide more quality affordable homes to the people who need them.

Building quality and environmentally sustainable affordable housing is a better long-term investment than building to minimum standards while instilling a greater sense of pride among residents and owners.

Community partnerships, such as Habitat for Humanity, are crucial to our goals. Habitat for Humanity provides sweat equity to build affordable homes for Métis and Aboriginal Albertans.
