Housing in Calgary: An Inventory of Housing Supply, 2015/2016

Housing in Calgary: An Inventory of Housing Supply, 2015/2016

In spring 2015, a sub-group of the Community Housing Affordability Collective (CHAC) was tasked with examining the housing supply in Calgary. The working group raised concerns about data gaps across the housing spectrum due to the fact that no central database or publication existed with comprehensive information on all types of housing found in Calgary. Specifically, the age of non-market housing data (last collected by The City of Calgary in 2011) was an identified gap.

In response to this concern, in late 2015, The City of Calgary took the lead on conducting an updated non-market housing survey. Consultations were held with members of CHAC who expressed a desire for an expanded scope, and a collaborative approach to the non-market housing survey design. CHAC requested that the final report include the results of the survey as well as basic data on all segments across the housing spectrum.
