Our responsibilities

Alberta Seniors and Housing provides programs and services to assist seniors and promote their safety and wellbeing. The ministry also supports the development of affordable housing and ensures Albertans in need have access to housing options.

The population of seniors in Alberta is currently over 600,000 and is expected to grow to one million by 2035. It is essential that they live safely and independently in their chosen communities. To that end, the ministry promotes age-friendly initiatives, working with communities to develop inclusive and welcoming approaches to a wide variety of challenges faced by seniors and those in need.
