On Affordable Housing
Affordable housing means having a safe, affordable and an appropriate place to live that meets the specific needs of people, that costs less than 30% of a family or individual’s income. Without affordable, appropriate and safe housing, those experiencing poverty spend most of their income on a place to live, stay with others, or face homelessness.
Great work in this area is being done through the City of Edmonton’s Affordable Housing Strategy, as well as Homeward Trust, Capital Region Housing and the many Indigenous owned, lead and operated housing agencies. EndPovertyEdmonton convenes all the affordable housing partners, the City of Edmonton and all those of lived experience, to ensure collaboration in an effort to dismantle the poverty trap and create a system that works, so that affordable housing can be available to everyone that needs it.
