About Forward Housing


With homes for all, people and communities thrive

Home is the reason we exist and the reason we show up every single day. We know that you cannot build a life without a safe and affordable place to call home. Our residents come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. While no two stories are the same, we all share one thing in common, the desire to have a safe place to lay our heads at the end of the day. We create homes where everyone can thrive.


We build and own affordable and well-cared-for homes — the foundation for well-being and belonging

Organizational Values







About Forward Housing

Since 1975, we have been working to ensure every Calgarian has a safe, affordable place to call home.

Our operations are divided into to two arms;

  • As a housing management body, we operate 478 senior self-contained units, across seven apartment buildings, for the Government of Alberta.
  • As an affordable housing provider, we own and operate 180 units across two buildings in Bridgeland-Riverside.

Key differentiators:

  • We serve a diverse mix of low income Calgarians. From families and individuals with a variety of needs, including those with mental health and mobility challenges, the working poor, seniors and those leaving homelessness and domestic violence.
  • Our mixed income, mixed use approach helps reduce stigma, promotes community integration, and enhances quality of life for our residents.
  • All of our buildings have a part time building maintainer, who addresses any maintenance concerns and a Tenant Service Coordinator who connects our tenants with support services and referrals as needed.
  • We subscribe to the Housing First principle; an approach to ending homelessness that centers on quickly moving people experiencing homelessness into independent and permanent housing and then providing additional supports and services as needed.
