Nanegkam Housing

In 1974, the Native Council of Prince Edward Island founded, Nanegkam Housing Corporation ( nanegkam housing.pdf ), which is a non-profit housing organization that assists off reserve Aboriginal people to acquire affordable adequate accommodations off reserve.

With over 30 years of experience, The Native Council has expanded to include three Aboriginal Housing Programs:

1) The Native Council of PEI Aboriginal Housing Commission provides affordable housing units within the Charlottetown area.  The program consists of a Seniors Complex with 6-one bedroom units and 2-two bedroom units.  The program's family/single duplex units consist of 3-three bedroom units and 3-one bedroom units.  Rental rates are classified as affordable and are not subsidized.  Rents include heat.  For more information, contact:
