Indigenous off-reserve affordable housing engagement

Increasing the supply of off-reserve, non-market, affordable rental housing units for Indigenous peoples in need.

Status: Under review
Ministry responsible: Seniors and Housing

The Government of Alberta has allocated $120 million over the next 5 years to increase the supply of off-reserve, non-market, affordable rental housing units for Indigenous peoples in need.

Indigenous organizations and Indigenous-serving organizations were invited to participate in a provincewide listening tour in June 2017. Information gathered will be used to inform the development of an Indigenous off-reserve affordable housing program.

The listening tour helped us understand:

  • who is most in need of off-reserve affordable rental housing
  • where off-reserve affordable rental housing is most needed
  • what characteristics the off-reserve affordable rental housing should have
