On November 30, 2015 Prince George Metis Housing Society changed its name to the Aboriginal Housing Society of Prince George. The new name reflects an inclusive approach to all services delivered to Aboriginal peoples in the Prince George Region, in both membership and housing.
In 2014 The Prince George Metis Housing Society had inherited 106 rural and native housing units throughout north central and east British Columbia.
In 2010 there was a board & administration change within the Prince George Metis Housing Society and a new vision for the Society began.
During this time, subsidies for the subsidized housing had declined so it was important for the Society to shift their focus so that they could be sustainable.
Prince George Metis Housing started in a one bedroom apartment on Spruce Street with 19 homes.
As the Society grew with the need for housing in the area, the Society purchased 167 housing units in the Prince George region.
