Affordable Housing Helps Calgarians

Affordable Housing Helps Calgarians


Affordable Housing is about people – people with hopes, need, dreams and the drive to succeed.

However, with market rental rates among the highest in Canada, it’s difficult for some Calgarians to pursue their dreams while affording a place to live.

The City of Calgary recently launched a campaign to raise awareness of affordable housing in our city. By showcasing the stories of the residents who are able to succeed with the help of these programs, citizens are encouraged to visit the Affordable Housing website and get informed about the need for affordable housing and how The City of Calgary is helping.

Affordable Housing’s goal is to educate citizens about the need for affordable Housing and its benefits for the community, and to increase support for affordable housing in Calgary. The campaign, rolling out from September through November, includes the use of video, print, online and outdoor advertising.
