DOTCHAI was officially incorporated in the Province of Manitoba on February 28, 1981 as a non-profit housing authority to serve the housing needs of the First Nation population. Since its incorporation, DOTCHAI now has the distinct recognition of being the largest urban aboriginal owned residential property manager.

The success of DOTCHAI can be attributed to the close working relationship it has developed with the Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation and the Manitoba Housing Renewal Corporation. Both CMHC and MHRC play critical roles in areas of government subsidy, portfolio management and technical assistance to ensure DOTCHAI provides the best possible service to the people it serves.

DOTCHAI is governed by a Board of Directors.  The management of the corporation are the Directors appointed by the Chief and Council from each of the DOTC Member First Nations. The term of office is determined by way of a band council resolution.

Dakota Ojibway First Nations Housing Authority Incorporated was created on October 20, 2005, which took over the operations of 219 rental housing units that were previously managed by the Aiyawin Corporation.

Manitoba Housing and Renewal Corporation (MHRC) provides funding for these housing units that was previously provided by Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC). Whereas previously with respect to First Nations, housing was the responsibility of Canada, this has now been devolved to the Provinces.

DOFNAI is governed by a Board of Directors.  The management of the Corporation are the Directors who are appointed by the Chief and Council from each of the DOTC Member First Nation.  Their term of office is also determined by way of a Band Council resolution.
