A diverse community is one that comprises people from all walks of life including a strong base of middle-class families, young adults, professionals, and senior citizens.  In order to maintain that diversity we have to make sure we can provide a variety of housing so that everyone has a place to call home. In the Spring of 2016 the Town conducted a community conversation centered around “How can we create affordable housing and maintain neighborhood character?” The project had numerous opportunities for residents to give their input on a variety of high level issues surrounding housing in Canmore.
