Key Advocacy Issues
ASCHA works on a variety of key issues related to housing sector advocacy in Alberta that directly impact Albertans living in communities across the province. These issues are identified by the sector, prioritized by our membership, and brought to the ASCHA Board of Directors for direction and action.
This page highlights the key issues ASCHA is working on now, including proposed solutions and ways other organizations, stakeholders, residents, potential residents, and the general public can support housing advocacy initiatives underway.
The housing provided by ASCHA’s members spans the housing continuum. Much of ASCHA’s advocacy relates to the interactions of housing with health and other supports. Seniors housing with service options (e.g. meals, housekeeping) and seniors housing with service options and health supports are designed to meet the needs seniors experience as they grow older. Other housing provided by ASCHA members is affordable housing and may be occupied by Albertans irrespective of their ages. ASCHA’s advocacy for affordable housing relates to the government’s regulation and funding of affordable housing. The issues below can apply to one or both of the housing streams noted.
