The St. Albert Housing Society (SAHS) was incorporated as an independent not for-profit organization under the Alberta Societies Act in 2007. The SAHS is dedicated to expanding the capacity of affordable housing options in St. Albert. The SAHS owns rental properties rented at 15% -20% below market rates, and provides additional rental supplements to eligible individuals as funding permits. Information and referral services are also provided to the community.
The SAHS is funded through a combination of rental revenues, government grants, and donations. Friends of St. Albert Housing Society is the fundraising arm raising contributions from individuals, associations and businesses.
