The Tseshaht First Nation Housing Program works with community members on Band Owned/Social Development Housing, Individual Homeowners, Elders and Disability and other types of housing.

While maintaining respectful relationships with tenants the housing department works cooperatively to collect monthly rent, conduct repairs and maintenance in a timely manner to ensure longevity of housing assets. We also assist members to receive funding for renovations, the housing department is a dedicated group of individuals who assist in improving the quality of life for all Tseshaht members.
