Calgary has more than 60 affordable housing partners working to provide safe and stable homes for individuals and families.

Calgary's largest property manager for affordable housing is Calgary Housing Company (CHC). CHC manages over 10,000 affordable housing units with more than 25,000 tenants living in a variety of mixed income housing options.

Once The City of Calgary completes construction on a new affordable housing development, the keys are handed over to CHC who works with residents and the community to create and maintain safe, secure and well-managed properties. CHC also connects residents living in affordable housing to support programs and resources offered by various agencies in Calgary.
