CORPORATE OVERVIEW

To administer the Corporation’s programs, a small corporate team of ninety housing professionals work to make the Corporation an action oriented service delivery agency. Structured around five distinct offices, this cohesive group is further supported by a network of twenty-five Local Housing Organizations which provide a crucial link to Nunavummiut and their communities.

Directorate & Corporate Headquarters

The Executive is responsible for managing the Corporation to ensure consistency in all its activities across Nunavut, including the application of policies, standards and procedures, and the delivery of programs. It also oversees the development of long-range strategies, policies, and operational guidelines on corporate matters for the Board of Directors, the Minister responsible for the Nunavut Housing Corporation, and for the Executive Council (Cabinet). As well, it ensures that programs are delivered according to the Corporation’s funding agreements with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC).

Corporate Policy & Communications group works on the development of corporate policy, strategic planning and communications related to key program areas. They provide support to the Minister, the Corporate Executive and the District Offices.

Corporate Headquarters coordinates the preparation, monitoring and reporting of the corporate programs. It also provides support to the District Offices in the areas of programs, contracting, project management, and technical design and maintenance.

District Offices

The Corporation’s District Offices manage and provide support in the delivery of programs and services to the communities. District Offices set regional priorities and work with LHOs and individual clients to ensure programs delivered are of appropriate standards through monitoring and assessment. The District Office is responsible for ensuring the construction program is successful within its region. It is also responsible for the delivery of various homeownership programs, and developing positive relationships with other government departments and agencies.

LHOs (Local Housing Organizations)

The Corporation partners with LHOs at the community level, who provide most of the day-to-day services associated with program delivery to individuals and families.

Virtually all LHOs are formed as independent organizations under the Societies Act (Housing Associations). Exceptions to this include the Iqaluit, Cape Dorset, Kugaaruk, and Taloyoak Housing Authorities which were formed under the Nunavut Housing Corporation Act.
