Civida is home for over 9,000 families in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.
As the largest provider of over 4,500 social housing homes and over 700 near market and market homes, we work with organizations and government agencies to develop, support and improve our communities and the lives of our families and individuals.
A home is more than just a roof overhead; it should be a safe and secure place where families build relationships and communities, where they enjoy economic prosperity and where they are happy and healthy.
We are very optimistic about the future!
A safe, affordable home plays a critical role in all aspects of life. Everyone deserves a home they can afford.
