A Place to Call Home
The Town of Banff’s economic prosperity – and our quality of life – relies on a strong, healthy community.
Housing is an essential part of that.
Without safe, clean, affordable places to live, our residents will struggle in their daily lives. In the 2017 Resident Satisfaction Survey, Banffites said the most important issue facing the community was affordable housing.
Housing is a community issue. Without appropriate housing for the entire community, our economic prosperity and our community’s well being suffers. Our own quality of life suffers. One of the critical needs is affordable rental housing.
The Town of Banff and Parks Canada have been working together to address housing issues in our community. In December 2015, Parks Canada agreed to transfer the leases of 14 lots to the Town at 90% below the assessed market value.
