Dze L K’ant Housing Society

In 2019, the Dze L k’ant Friendship Centre Society incorporated a new housing society: The Dze L K’ant Housing Society. The Dze L K’ant Housing Society was created to own and operate culturally safe Indigenous housing in the communities we serve.

Vision & Goals

The Dze L K’ant Housing Society’s goal is to ensure urban Indigenous people can afford to live safely in our communities. We aim to create a sense of belonging, cultural safety and vibrancy. Our housing projects will be places where our tenants are supported to live holistically healthy lives.

What We Do:

We are currently working actively with BC housing and local municipalities toward our goal of developing and operating affordable Indigenous housing in the communities of Smithers, Houston and Telkwa.

We aim to be leaders in providing culturally safe housing for elders, families and individuals.
