For Immediate Release: ASCHA’s Response to Bill 78

ASCHA has published a media release on Bill 78 considerations.

On December 8, Bill 78 – Alberta Housing Amendment Act, received Royal Assent. It is expected to come into effect promptly. <This line will be updated when it is approved>

ASCHA applauds the steps taken by the Provincial Government to make affordable housing a priority, yet has some concerns about the Bill considering the provincial government has not yet committed adequate funding to grow the stock of affordable housing. Alberta left at least $187 million in federal funding on the table in its NHS bilateral agreement to provide capital for affordable housing. There has also been a lack of support from the provincial government for project applications submitted by housing organizations for federal funding.  Our media release is linked below:
