Manitoba Tipi Mitawa

For more information on how you may qualify for future intakes, please contact Natalie Yourchek at or 204-772-0405.

MREA partnered with the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and the Manitoba government to create Manitoba Tipi Mitawa (MTM), helping First Nations Manitobans buy their own homes. MTM provides up to a 15 per cent down payment and a potential monthly subsidy towards the mortgage costs of a modest home. This helps First Nations families build equity in real estate – in some cases becoming the first in their families to own homes.

Watch our MTM families as they spend their first Christmas in a home of their own.
