Housing solutions that partner with non-profit organizations, the private sector and all levels of government are crucial to increasing the supply of affordable housing across Alberta. Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta’s Livingston project will provide 24 new homes for families once complete in December.

The project is receiving $900,000 from the Canada-Alberta Bilateral Agreement under the National Housing Strategy. The units are designated for eligible Habitat families in the Calgary community, with six units allocated for Black Canadian families.

“I want to extend my congratulations to Habitat for Humanity Southern Alberta on the groundbreaking of the Livingston development. With 24 new affordable townhomes, more families in northeast Calgary will be able to access safe, stable housing. This project is a great example of how partnerships between the non-profit and private sectors and all orders of government can improve and expand affordable housing for Albertans.”

Jason Nixon, Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services

“Announcements like today showcase our commitment to working with all levels of government and partners like Habitat for Humanity. This investment will not only provide safe and affordable housing for these hard-working middle-class families but will also help strengthen the city of Calgary by creating a diverse and inclusive community for new homeowners to grow and thrive in. This is a big step forward towards our goal of delivering meaningful results and increased affordability through our government’s National Housing Strategy.”

Sean Fraser, federal Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities
