EverGreen Party of Alberta response to Question 05

Question: What commitment will you make to the construction of more affordable housing in cities?

What measures would you be willing to introduce to encourage the participation of the private sector in the development of more affordable housing in the large cities?

Answer: The EverGreen Party of Alberta salutes the City of Calgary’s efforts to implement the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness. As part of our province- wide, localised, green energy production and green retrofit program, we will offer provincial tax incentives for landlords and property developers to renovate and restore substandard housing stock using sustainable and energy- efficient technologies, and we will increase the civil and criminal penalties under the Safety Codes Act for non-compliant gas, electrical, plumbing, elevator, and fire protection systems.
