Program Administration Update
What does CMHC look at in Client Visits?
 Governance structure – separation of duties and signing - look at
cheque signing, disbursements, receipts
 Record keeping – are there tenant files, are there maintenance
files?
 Operational practices – is there annual inspections on units, does
regular maintenance take place?
 Housing policies – are they in place? Are they enforced?
 Financial operations – are rents being charged, are tenants
declaring income to receive subsidies, is there budget planning with
the finance department?
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION
Program Administration – CV’s cont.
Why is this important?
 Strong practices enable housing to remain viable and also can
provide long term affordable housing
 Units not only need to be built well, they need to be managed and
maintained well – they are a valuable asset to the community that if
managed well can provide safe, secure and affordable housing over
the long run.
What are we seeing?
 Some communities do not charge rent – poor revenue stream with
an associated debt to pay (mortgage and operating costs) can lead
to deficits or borrowing from other operations.
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION
Program Administration – CV’s cont.
 It has been noted that some communities do not carry out regular
maintenance on their units – no maintenance files are evident and
no tracking of work or cost of repair work on each unit
 It has been noted that many communities are not setting aside the
required reserves to ensure funds are available for future capital
replacements. This can result in a need to borrow from other
sources

Program Administration Update
Physical Condition Reviews (PCR’s)
 41 First Nations are scheduled to have PCR’s completed this
calendar year
 As of October 19, 2012 - 16 First Nation communities have had their
inspections completed and entered into our PCR database. 25
communities still remain outstanding
CANADA MORTGAGE AND HOUSING CORPORATION
17
Program Administration – PCR’s
cont
 PCR’s look at how the buildings are being maintained – the annual
maintenance process which can feed into the communities
budgeting process for expenses
 Once the inspections are completed, the reports will be forwarded to
clients for their review
 PCR reports are intended to identify any health and safety items &
CMHC looks to the community to provide a plan to correct these
issues as soon as possible. If units are showing signs of premature
wear, CMHC can review and help to set up improved maintenance
practices.

Moving Forward
New Directions for 2013
 Internally within our region, likely moving closer to a full service
client model
 CMHC will be seeking action plans from First Nations to identify how
and when some major operational issues will be resolved (for
example, how and when an underfunded Replacement Reserve will
get funded)
 Possibility that there will be national eligibility criteria used to
determine if First Nations are eligible for new Section 95 funding
