In many communities, the Housing Board (Committee / Authority) acts as the governing body of the First Nation’s housing programs. It operates under authority delegated by Chief and Council. The Terms of Reference define the Housing Board’s responsibilities, its authority, its composition, its procedures and rules of conduct, confidentiality, conflict of interest, and amendments.
