The Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council Housing Policy Toolkit Project is a capacity development initiative of the Naut’sa mawt Tribal Council (NmTC) that is national in scope.


Toolkit 2.0 is intended to provide a comprehensive, flexible, user-friendly and non-prescriptive discussion and policy framework that First Nations can adapt to their specific rental and rent-to-own housing policy requirements without having to “re-invent the wheel”.


The Toolkit includes legal commentary and expert advice embedded in the following sample templates:

  1. Rent and Rent-To-Own Housing Policy and Procedures, including:

    • Eligibility, Application and Allocation of Rental Housing; Arrears; Termination of Tenancy; Marital Breakdown; Death of a Tenant (including Rent-To-Own); Insurance; Tenant Damage and Vandalism; Condition Assessments; Transfer of Ownership; and Appeals Procedures.

  2. Rental Agreement;

  3. Rent-To-Own Agreement;

  4. Sublease Agreement;

  5. Arrears Repayment Agreement;

  6. Tenant Damage Agreement;

  7. Pet Policy Tenancy Addendum;

  8. Rental Schedule of Maintenance and Repair Responsibilities;

  9. Rent-to-Own Phased Schedule of Maintenance and Repair Responsibilities; and

  10. Twenty-Five Sample Appendix.



The NmTC gratefully acknowledges the:

  • T’Sou-ke Nation, Halalt First Nation and Klahoose First Nation for providing the partnership support necessary to access project funding for Version 2.0;

  • funding support of the New Relationship Trust for Version 2.0;
