Accessible Housing is a leading organization providing affordable housing for people with limited mobility through accessible housing. This report provides background socio-economic data surrounding persons with disabilities and couples this with industry interviews with leading non-profit affordable housing providers to assess the existing market for accessible housing within Calgary.

With the current economic and health crisis, Albertans need affordable, accessible, and suitable housing more than ever, and the feasibility study and market assessment identifies gaps in Calgary regarding accessible, affordable housing and establishes plans to meet the demands in community, including what type of programs and services need to be developed.

It was believed that this building would allow people with disabilities to be seen in a new dimension, hence the “Fourth Dimension” name. That dream has since grown.
