Why is the Town building housing?
Housing is a community-wide issue. The Banff Community Housing Strategy was developed by a local task force with extensive community consultation. Implementing its solutions is a shared responsibility. Private enterprise is part of the solution, and many local businesses, including Parks Canada, provide housing for their employees.
