Information for Tenants and Applicants on New Housing Agreement

Information for Current Tenants and Applicants about the New Community Housing Portfolio Agreement

We are pleased to let current Calgary Housing Company Tenants and individuals with existing applications for housing know of an exciting development that will help ensure the ongoing availability of over 1,000 City-owned affordable homes managed by Calgary Housing Company.

Affordable housing programs are funded in partnership by the Government of Canada, Government of Alberta and The City of Calgary. The City of Calgary and the Government of Alberta recently signed a renewed funding agreement for City owned social housing of $34 Million over the next four years. Without this agreement there would have been a significant decrease in subsidies.

Calgary Housing Company operates a number of affordable housing portfolios, totalling over 7,200 households across the city. The agreement announced on February 18, 2021 affects the 1,000 units in the City-owned Community Housing Portfolio.

For Existing Tenants

Residents of homes in the City-owned Community Housing Portfolio are being contacted individually to make them aware of the intent of the agreement.

Calgary Housing Company is committed to providing safe, affordable housing and supporting individual and community wellbeing. If you have any immediate questions about this new agreement, please email

For Individuals with Existing Applications for Housing

CHC Applicants are advised that as units under this new agreement become vacant, CHC will be renting these units at set rent rates. If you are already on the CHC waitlist and you meet the minimum qualifications, then your application will be considered for these units.

Calgary Housing Company is committed to providing safe, affordable housing and supporting individual and community wellbeing.
