Council direction


The private housing market meets the needs of a majority of Calgary's households. But almost 20% of Calgarians struggle with housing costs. 

 
Council is:
  • working with all levels of government to increase housing supply,
  • pricing City land at below-market cost for affordable housing operations,
  • prioritizing and streamlining City planning services for affordable housing, and
  • creating incentives in the business and non-profit communities for affordable housing development.
