First Nations Housing Professionals Association

January 1, 2019

A new First Nations professional group will begin work on January 1, 2019. The FNHPA is a national not-for-profit voluntary association whose purpose is to provide the means whereby FN housing managers and staff can better serve their communities and clients by developing, promoting and delivering quality standards, practices, certification, education, and by facilitating networking opportunities within the FN housing sector. By doing so, the FNHPA will provide the leadership and services to support housing professionals.

The FNHPA aims to:

  • develop standards for competency, certification and ethical conduct;
  • provide members with timely, relevant educational products and services to support and enhance the role of First Nations housing professionals;
  • assist with standard setting for First Nations housing matters and the interpretation of and training on these standards;
  • attract members who are proud to belong, have a desire to obtain and maintain a professional housing designation, wish to participate in networks, and are committed to sharing FNHPA’s purpose; and build relationships and partnerships with organizations looking to expand First Nations housing capacity.
