Becoming a Tenant
Thank you for considering us! We don’t accept direct applications from prospective tenants. Instead, we work with more than 30 referring social service agencies. These partner agencies refer prospective tenants to us.
It works like this: We have 742 apartment units across eight buildings in Calgary. Each of our referring partner agencies has an allotted number of units.
When we have a vacancy, we reach out to the assigned agency to let them know that a unit is available for one of their clients. Then we work with the partner to ensure the available unit and building location are a good fit for the unique needs of the client.
We do not maintain a waiting list.
If you are interested in making your home with us, please view our partnering agencies and reach out to any that could offer you support based on your current situation.
Why do we use this process? We believe that success starts with the right home and appropriate supports. We provide stability in the form of a safe, secure, affordable home. Our partner agencies are experts on social supports. Together, we work to ensure our tenants receive what they need to achieve long-term success.
