Calgary Housing Action Initiative

The housing crisis in Calgary is massive. Last year alone we lost 2.2% of the total rental units in the city - at a time when we are experiencing record population growth. We have the fastest growing homeless population in Alberta - if not in the whole country.

The scary statistics, and disturbing personal stories, just keep piling up.

I've been super-busy (even by my workaholoic standards) since early August with the Calgary Housing Action Initiative (CHAI), a new coaltion that's come together to try to address the crisis both in the short-term, and to make some substantive changes to try to prevent it from happening again over the long-term.
