Affordable Housing Community Engagement

The City of Edmonton has adopted a city-wide Affordable Housing Framework in an effort to meet the needs of struggling Edmonton households, with an aspirational target of 16% affordable housing in every neighbourhood in the City.

In the past, community members have expressed a desire for better engagement opportunities when developments of this nature enter their communities. That’s why we’ve enlisted the Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) to help us run targeted focus groups in every Community League District so that we can understand the successes, challenges, and opportunities your communities have encountered during engagement for housing development.

Never had an affordable housing development in your neighbourhood? That’s ok – experience with all types of development is welcome and valued. Your feedback will help inform a report being submitted to the City of Edmonton on how to better engage community leagues in these important discussions.

The focus group for Districts D & H will be held on Saturday, April 27 at 9:00 am at Brookview Community League (280 Bulyea Road) and will run for roughly an hour. Refreshments will be provided.

If you have any questions or would like to sign up to participate, please contact the Research Coordinator, Sandra Ngo at 780-423-2031 ext. 354 or researchcoord@edmontonsocialplanning.ca.
