Created in 2001, Wood Buffalo Housing (WBH) is a not-for- profit, arm’s length Part 9 subsidiary of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. We collaborate with our many stakeholders, including tenants, community groups, non-profits, industry and government to pursue safe and sustainable housing solutions for all residents of our community. We provide housing options for every level of need, including individuals, families and seniors, citizens who find themselves homeless, and first-time home buyers.

Since 2001, we’ve helped more than 7,000 people – those new to our community and those making a new start – find the right apartment, the right townhouse, and the right way to achieve home ownership.
