Nearly 50,000 Edmonton households are still in core housing need, including families with children.
To address all current housing needs in Edmonton, we would need:
To help fill this need, Edmonton’s non-profit housing providers and the City of Edmonton plan to build 5000 new units of affordable housing in the next five years. Edmonton City Council has committed $140 million to this initiative, but we need $1.127 billion in provincial and federal investment to make it happen.
Here in Edmonton, we are ready, willing and able to build 5000 new affordable housing units in the next five years.
Our plan contributes to the fulfillment of federal and provincial affordable housing commitments.
We are leading providers of non-profit housing in Edmonton – and we’ve learned we’re most effective when we all work together. We formed our working group to tackle Edmonton’s urgent need for affordable housing and improve housing services for people and families in Edmonton who need them.
Our group is comprised of primary players in affordable housing provision in Edmonton. We have been collaborating and working hard together for many years to get to this position – and we are ready to go. We aren’t talking about years of planning and consultation – we’re talking about 5000 new affordable housing units in the next five years. With the support of Alberta and Canada, we will make this happen.
We need your support to address the housing crisis in Edmonton.
