SACHA is not a Housing Provider

SACHA is not a housing provider, we are a federation that provides education and services to housing co-operatives in Southern Alberta. Each housing co-operative is independently run and there are varying accommodations, membership criteria and application requirements. You will need to contact individual housing co-operatives directly to inquire about availability or to apply. Visit our Co-op Directory for a full listing of individual co-ops and their contact information.

While many housing co-ops outside of Calgary tend to have a higher vacancy rate, housing co-ops in Calgary rarely have vacant units. As most co-ops also have a waitlist, this can make finding a home in a hurry quite difficult.

If you are in need of an urgent housing solution, visit the Government of Alberta Affordable Housing Program website where you can access information about all affodrdable housing options in Alberta that will be tailored to your needs and based on your answers to a few questions: www.alberta.ca/affordable-housing-programs

Public Information Sessions

While SACHA did offer free public information sessions in the past, in recent years, it has be come commonplace for individual housing co-ops to provide free orientation/information sessions to interested individuals. Please contact the co-op(s) of your interest directly to ask about their information sessions. Visit our Co-op Directory for a full listing of individual co-ops and their contact information.
