How To Apply


There are certain basic requirements that must be met in order to apply for any of our programs. These requirements include:

  • You must be a Canadian Citizen, independent landed immigrant, or government sponsored landed immigrant.

Applying At CRH

Before you visit...

  1. Visit the Application Forms page to download all of the necessary application forms.
  2. Please note that the first 2 pages of the Housing Application Form specify all of the additional documents that may be necessary to be included with your application.
  3. Only FULLY COMPLETED Application forms will be processed.
  4. Gather the completed forms from Step 1 and the documents from Step 2 then visit the CRH offices at 10232 - 112 Street NW, Edmonton, Alberta. The offices are open from 8:30am - 4:00pm, Monday to Friday. The offices are closed on statutory holidays.

At the CRH offices...

  1. Inform the Applications Clerk for which program you are applying (Community Housing, Direct Rent Supplement, Affordable Housing, etc.), then present the Clerk with all of the papers you brought with you, and they will help you complete the application process.

After you have applied...

  1. The processing of applications will be completed as quickly as possible. You will be contacted by CRH staff and advised if you are eligible. If you are eligible you will be put on a waiting list for the programs you applied for. Due to high demand for all of our programs we are unable to say when housing or a subsidy will be available.
  2. Be sure that you keep CRH informed of any changes in your current contact information and financial situation. You can fill out the appropriate form and mail, fax, or hand deliver it to CRHC offices.
  3. CRH will contact you when they have a housing unit or subsidy available for you. Housing units and subsidies are given to applicants based on need. They are not granted on a first come, first serve basis. CRH keeps all eligible applications until they have been granted a housing unit or subsidy, as long as your information is kept accurate and up-to-date.
