Supportive housing is a home. Edmontonians who live in supportive housing find safety, stability, and a community of healing where they can recover and grow.

Supportive housing is not a shelter, drop-in, halfway house, or any other type of temporary accommodation. It is long-term housing where residents sign a lease and pay subsidized rent while receiving the 24/7 health, wellness, and life skills support they need to succeed. 

Increasing the supply of supportive housing is a key priority of the City’s Affordable Housing Investment Plan (2019-2022) and the plan to end homelessness in Edmonton. The City helps build supportive housing by providing land and/or grants to non-market housing providers.
