Housing Options

Calgary Housing Company offers a variety of options for individuals and families seeking affordable housing.

Subsidized Housing

Program Overview
  • Low rents - may be set as a percentage of income or may be a fixed rate
  • High demand - waitlist based on priority score (not first come, first served)
  • Strict Income Limits
  • Unit size will be set based on family composition (how many people, how many children)

Near Market Rentals

Program Overview
  • Rents approximately 10% below market
  • No wait list - first-come, first-served based on availability
  • Higher income limits, fewer qualifications to meet
  • No specific bedroom numbers for household size - you can rent a larger unit based on availability

Private Landlord Rent Supplement

Program Overview
  • Program pays a rent subsidy for private landlord rentals
  • Applicants can apply for subsidy for existing rentals
  • Limited availability based on program funding
  • Excellent option where CHC does not have units that meet tenant needs (i.e. unit size, location, accessibility requirements, allowing pets, etc.)
