Eviction Prevention and CHC Rent Payment Plans

Eviction Prevention and CHC Rent Payment Plans

Calgary Housing Company is committed working with tenants who are at risk of eviction due to rental arrears by developing a rent payment plan.

At Calgary Housing Company, our mandate is to provide affordable housing to low and moderate income Calgarians. As a compassionate and caring landlord, we believe in the core value that everyone should have access to safe, affordable housing.

All tenants are responsible for paying their rent, however we do recognize the loss of income and financial hardship that some tenants may face, particularly through the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are having difficulty with your rent payments, please contact your Property Manager immediately to develop a rent payment plan. If you are facing eviction due to non-payment of rent, you must enter into and a rent payment plan to avoid eviction.

What is a Rent Payment Plan?

Rent payment plans are an agreement between a landlord and a tenant that outlines the payments that will be made over a period of time to catch up on rent arrears. A rent payment plan considers the income and expenses, the amount of rent owing, and a reasonable, agreed to time period for repayment. This help us to develop a payment plan that can be successful and is within the financial means of households.

Failure to adhere to the rent payment plan may result in eviction.
