The 2014 Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) Social Assessment told us that there are a lot of ways to live affordably in Banff and the Bow Valley but that people often leave town before they find out about them. So we have put that information together in one handy guide.

This 4th edition of the guide provides information on services from childcare to transportation, food to housing, activities and health and wellness and everything in between: all available at no cost or low cost for residents in the Bow Valley. Whether you are brand new to the valley or have lived here for decades there is something for you.

More information on affordability and assistance programs available in the Town of Banff.
