Take Action on Affordable Housing

Calgary is in a housing crisis.

Email Your Councillor

Calgary is in a housing crisis. Your presence is needed: firstly, to share with our political leaders the importance of this issue to everyday Calgarians. It impacts all walks of life, from students to those on fixed incomes and Calgarians starting their lives in our communities and neighbourhoods.

We've launched a writing campagin, which you can view and send in a message to your city councillor here.



Councillors are reviewing these recommendations after voting against them, and then returning to council to vote for them again (14-1). However, it was only done after public pressure by people like you and us.

Pressure needs to take place again. Your attention and your voice is needed now more than ever. So please reach out to your local representative to have your voice heard in advocating for the common good.
