Civida is home for over 9,000 families in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

As the largest provider of over 4,500 social and over 600 near 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.

Civida manages more than 5,000 housing rental units throughout the Edmonton area. Select an area of the map to see Civida’s housing rental units in that region.
