Wildrose response to Question 9

Question 1:  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?

Question: 2  Will you reinstate block funding to enable The City of Calgary to sustain affordable housing development?

Question: 3  What commitment will you make to the construction of more affordable housing in cities?

Question: 4  What measures would you be willing to introduce to encourage the participation of the private sector in the development of more affordable housing in Alberta’s cities?

Answer:  One of the reasons to quickly pursue a City Charter for Calgary is to address some of the issues faced by Calgary regarding affordable housing and services for the homeless population, which is the largest in Alberta.  Wildrose is maintaining the provincial investment in affordable housing, but we do think that the current model of approving block funding needs some review for accountability and efficacy.

Wildrose is very supportive of new regulations to encourage more private sector investment in affordable housing.
