Shouldn’t the Banff Housing Corporation (BHC) build new housing?
In June 2014, the board of directors of the Banff Housing Corporation decided to focus on its non-discretionary responsibilities; that is, services provided to the BHC homeowners and housing portfolio. The board requested the Town of Banff take over the development of housing and long-term housing planning. The Town has skilled staff and resources to undertake these tasks and project management.

Once the housing is developed, it will be managed in perpetuity by the Banff Housing Corporation.
