Mohawk Council of Akwesasne

Mohawk Council of Akwesasne

The Akwesasne Mohawk Territory is a community of over 12,000 Mohawks who have inhabited the St. Lawrence River Valley for centuries. The territory straddles the international boundary line between the United States (New York State) and Canada, while also straddling the Quebec-Ontario provincial line. These boundaries have created complex jurisdictions throughout the Akwesasne territory that can complicate our community members’ path to success and daily life.

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne governs the northern (Canadian) portion of the community and strives to improve the lives of community members through many departments, including Housing.

The First Nations Market Housing Fund benefits the community by providing additional tools and resources needed to break down barriers and make the dream of home ownership a reality.

“Housing continues to be one of our community’s most pressing needs. As a multi-jurisdictional territory, home-ownership can be very challenging to achieve in Akwesasne. Programs and initiatives like the First Nations Market Housing Fund are the resources MCA needs to address our unique challenges and making housing and mortgages available to more of our community members.”
