THE NANAIMO AFFORDABLE HOUSING SOCIETY (NAHS) was formed in 1990 by Nanaimo residents who were concerned about the lack of safe, affordable housing for people with low incomes in our community. The Mission of the Association is to develop and manage housing and support services for people with special needs.

At this year’s AGM, a decision was made to change the status of the existing membership to that of Associate Members. The Directors of the Society at any point will constitute the formal membership of the Society.

Going forward, associate members will continue to be kept informed of new developments and progress of the Society and will be invited to attend the AGM for as long as they are interested to learn about the ongoing work of NAHS.

All current members, except for the current Board of Directors, automatically remain as associate members until they inform the Society that they are no longer interested in updates.

To become an associate member of NAHS, all it takes is your name and e-mail address and you will be added to the associate member contact list. There is no charge to become an associate member and associate members can request to be removed from the contact list at any time.

If you would like to become an associate member, just send an e-mail to:, giving us your name and e-mail address. It is that simple.
