There is an ongoing need for affordable home ownership for families

In 2022, the Town of High River and Westwinds Communities completed a report regarding the need for affordable housing. In the report, it was found that 53% of renters in High River were struggling to afford housing, and 49% of renters saw an increase in rental costs since 2006. Another discovery from the report was that more than 1/3 of owners wouldn't be able to afford their current property if they were to attempt to buy at the time the report released.  

During the summer of 2020, the Town of Okotoks did their own assessment on the state of affordable housing to create a plan moving forward for the town. This study states that 45% of renters are paying more than they can afford, with many people who work in Okotoks being unable to afford housing in the town. This report estimates that almost 50%, or 685 households, are experiencing unaffordability

The Habitat for Humanity home ownership program provides an alternative housing solution for hard-working Foothills families who struggle to save enough for a down payment, through offering a no down payment, no interest mortgage, that's geared to each family's income.

Build Update

New duplex build now complete

We have partnered with the Town of Okotoks, Anthem United and Morrison Homes to build a duplex in the new D'ARCY development in Okotoks.

We recently completed a land purchase in High River and will be breaking ground in 2024 with the build projected to be completed approximately one year after breaking ground. Visit this page in the future for more updates.
