Help us grow the petition for rent control!

Renters rights to affordable, secure and dignified housing rests on winning rent control in Alberta!

Our petition is our way to demonstrate public support, and build mobilizing power for the movement for affordable housing and economic justice.

RAM is not endorsing the celebrations happening at this time for Canada 150.

RAM fights against housing displacement and sees our struggle as intertwined with Indigenous struggles against colonial displacement.

Canada 150 is a significant date for honouring the 150 years of resistance against profiteering displacement- from Indigenous Land Defenders to homeless tent protest camps across the country.

More facts about rent in Alberta:

Almost half of Alberta renters have incomes at or below Calgary's living wage line.

One quarter of renters pay more than 30% of their income on rent - the baseline for housing affordability.

Alberta's social housing has a repair deficit of $1 Billion.

Despite the vacancy rates, Alberta' average two-bedroom unit is only down 50$.

Calgary is the country's most unaffordable city to for housing for those on income assistance.
