Affordable Housing

Affordable housing is defined by the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) as housing for which costs do not exceed 30% of the tenant's income.

The City of Grande Prairie's Community Social Development department in partnership with the Government of Alberta and various community builders have created several Affordable Housing options in Grande Prairie. 

Options available include:

  • Direct rental
  • Private landlord rent supplement
  • Direct rent supplement assistance
  • Affordable housing

Eligibility to access this programming is based on annual income, housing need, level of assets and ability to pay rent.

For more information, contact the Grande Spirit Foundation. 


The City is currently developing a new Affordable Housing Strategy. The plan needs to be updated to reflect current conditions in the City and to take advantage of new opportunities, such as funding from the National Housing Strategy.
