News and Publications

We've rebranded to Civida!

As of April 7, 2021, our new name is Civida (pronounced Si-VEE-duh). The name Capital Region Housing will no longer be used.

We’re changing to reflect our future direction, to distinguish our name from others in the affordable housing marketplace and to reflect that we provide services beyond Edmonton.

For the past 50 years, we’ve been providing Edmontonians with affordable housing options, helping to create a vibrant city where people can thrive. We will continue to do that as Civida.
