“HomeEd gave me a chance to start a new life.”
Built for belonging.
We believe every Edmontonian deserves a home where they can build a life and grow. As your partner in that journey, we’re here to help you find a home you love and can afford in a safe and caring community.
HomeEd serves thousands of Edmontonians living in the 1,400+ apartments and townhouses that we own and manage throughout the City. We want everyone who lives in a HomeEd property to feel they are getting great value as a welcome member of a caring community. Everything we do is towards this purpose. Everything we do is in service to you.
Providing affordable rents in a sustainable way.
HomeEd is a non-profit organization that provides affordable rentals to a diverse group of individuals and families with varied income levels. We try to keep rents as low as we can while ensuring our buildings and organization remain financially sustainable.
In doing so, we evaluate our rents against the rates that comparable properties are charging. Our rents will, at most, be in line with these rates. HomeEd also takes into account household size and income when determining whether tenants are eligible to receive lower rent through our Rent Subsidy Program. Eligibility for this program is subject to an annual income cap determined by household size, as we focus on rent relief for those with more limited means.
The vast majority of HomeEd tenants receive below market rents through our Rent Subsidy Program. To provide rent relief to as many people as we do, we generally keep our subsidized rental rates at 20% below City-wide average market rates for applicable unit types and sizes. We also have some properties where we receive additional government support to subsidize rents even further for those who are of greater need.
Put simply, all our rents are of good value compared to other similar rentals, while tenants with more limited income can receive lower rents. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions to learn more about our rent model.
Focused on resident satisfaction.
Nothing gives us more joy than hearing about the positive impact we have in the lives of our residents. HomeEd conducts regular tenant surveys with the goal of learning and improving everyday. We are proud that our resident feedback is overwhelmingly positive, much like the comments listed below.
