04. Homelessness and Affordable Housing

The 2008 Calgary 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness identified a goal of 11,250 affordable housing units for Calgary alone. The goal was modified to 8,500 units this year because of reduced provincial capital grants for the next two years. The City of Calgary’s target of providing 200 units of affordable housing per year is jeopardized with the provincial government’s decision to eliminate block funding for the development of affordable housing.

Questions: Will you support Calgary’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness by providing a greater share of funding to Calgary to reflect the city’s growth, cost of living and high homeless population? 

Will you reinstate block funding to enable The City of Calgary to sustain affordable housing development?
