Prince George firm chosen to manage properties in Prince Rupert

A Prince George firm will now oversee the management of more that 250 housing units in Prince Rupert.

The province announced that M'akola Housing Society has been chosen to provide property management and administration services to several social housing developments in the community. Included among the properties are the 84 units at Mariposa Gardens near Hays Cove, the 37 units at Pineridge Terrace on Summit Ave., the 100 units at Harbour View Gardens on McKay and Kootenay, the 10 units at Kootenay Place on Kootenay Ave. and the 36 units at the Sunset Villa Apartments at the end of 3rd Ave. West.

The government said the M'akola Housing Society was chosen because of their nearly 30-years of experience in "providing safe, affordable housing to aboriginals throughout the province" through the more than 1,300 social housing units the group manages throughout B.C.

The agreement will be administered through the Aboriginal Housing Management Association (AHMA), under the Aboriginal self-management model for social housing.
