We work directly with private landlords to make homes more affordable.

Civida provides Private Landlord Rent Supplements to eligible individuals within the City of Edmonton and surrounding communities. Recipient households live in private rental homes and pay an affordable rent to their landlord. Civida pays a monthly rent supplement amount to the landlord to compensate for the difference between the tenant’s affordable rent and the market rent.

The Private Landlord Rent Supplement program is governed by the Rent Supplement Regulation and the Social Housing Accommodation Regulation .

PLEASE NOTE: The Private Landlord Rent Supplement program is closed to new applications and remains available for existing agreements only. All agreements will expire by 2029. Current recipients may transition to Rent Assistance Benefit (RAB) if they remain eligible. Please contact Civida if you have more questions.
