What is Affordable Housing?
Council approved the Affordable Housing Task Force's recommendation regarding the definition of affordable housing in Okotoks:
Okotoks, like many other towns and cities has a very tight rental market with low vacancy rates. Council has appointed an Affordable Housing Task Force to provide recommendations on a long-term strategy to increase affordable housing and create a more inclusive community for Okotoks.
Recommendations: November 13, 2019 Council meeting:
Okotoks affordable and subsidized housing options are administered by Westwinds Communities, a not-for-profit Housing Management Body that works with partnering municipalities to provide safe affordable housing opportunities and access to rent supplement programs.
