Housing Team

The C/TFN Housing Team is an administrative body of the Carcross/Tagish First Nation whose function is to guide and support the administration of the C/TFN Housing Department in a manner that is consistent with the C/TFN Mission Statement and Tagish & Tlingit values.


It is mandated to strive to meet the housing needs of the Citizens without unduly increasing the financial risk or loss to the Carcross/Tagish First Nation. Its challenge is to deliver the program with the constraints of existing budgets, government programs, Carcross/Tagish First Nation objectives and the ability of Citizens to provide their own housing.

The C/TFN Housing Team has delegated authority to:

  • Participate in the development of C/TFN housing policy
  • To approve transfers to home ownership
  • To participate in the development of annual budgets for housing
  • To allocate home ownership grants subject to available budgets
  • To approve transfers of housing units
  • To set rents and fees
  • To allocate rental units
  • To set tenant guidelines
