A Home for Everyone

Increased access to dignified quality, accessible, culturally-appropriate, affordable housing throughout the province

  • Build more public, co-op and non-profit housing that meet accessibility needs while avoiding urban sprawl.
  • Invest directly in the construction and rehabilitation of non-market social housing with wrap-around mental health and social supports where required. Advocates recommend a budget of roughly $600m a year over the next ten years. This funding would go to not-for-profits, public housing management bodies, and co-ops
  • Restructured funding formulas for public housing to allow for adaptations to accommodate large and multi-generational families. Large families spend a long time on waiting lists, causing negative repercussions, especially for children
  • Ensure long-term, sustainable funding for repairs, renovations and maintenance of public housing, including Alberta’s seniors’ lodges
  • Build more on-campus housing
  • Re-establishing a Ministry of Housing to work with all levels of government on ending the housing crisis 
    • Urging the federal government to properly fund Indigenous housing - on reserves, on settlements, and in communities throughout Alberta
    • Advocate for more federal funding investments to support housing for new Canadians

Supporting the housing needs of Albertans in rural communities

  • Stronger role for Housing Management Bodies 
  • More affordable housing for essential service providers in smaller communities and seasonal workers in Alberta’s tourist destinations
    Partnerships with non-profit organizations to ensure our housing strategy meets the needs of people and families from Alberta’s diverse, cultural communities 
  • More accessible housing and accommodations supports for people with unique needs and sustainable funding for repairs, renovations and maintenance of public housing, including Alberta’s seniors’ lodges
