The Government of Alberta and Horizon Housing Society celebrated the grand opening of Calgary’s Horizon View affordable housing development on June 21.

Horizon View offers a range of rent pricing based on income to ensure homes are affordable for a range of Calgarians – from homeless individuals to middle-income families. The start of construction on the second phase of the building was also announced. Once complete, Horizon View will be one of the largest affordable housing developments in Calgary based on the number of people served.

The province contributed $17.9 million for Phase 1 construction and an additional $4.3 million for Phase 2. Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation contributed $15.67 million in construction financing for the project, and the City of Calgary and the RESOLVE Campaign also provided support.
