The Branching Out Program is GROWING in 2023!

February 25, 2023

Urban Forestry recognizes an immediate need to increase tree canopy on private land within our city. We have seen canopy loss on private land over the past 10 years. In efforts to support this direction, this year there will be 2000 trees given away to residential homes within the City of Calgary city limits.

Affordability Alberta Action Plan

February 8, 2023

Seniors, families with children under 18, and Albertans on core support programs can get $600 to help with rising cost of living.

As part of the affordability Action Plan, millions of Albertans struggling with inflation and the high cost of living can apply for the Affordability Payment Program until June 30, 2023.

  • Families with household incomes under $180,000 can apply for $600 per child under 18.
  • Seniors who have household incomes under $180,000 and do not receive the Alberta Seniors Benefit can apply for $600 per person.
  • Anyone receiving monthly benefits through AISH, Income Support, Alberta Seniors Benefit or services through Persons with Developmental Disabilities (PDD) will automatically get their personal $600 payment, but will need to apply for additional payments if they have kids under 18.
  • Federal benefit recipients (Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security) can still apply if they do not receive the provincial Alberta Seniors Benefit.

You can apply using the link below or go into your neighbourhood Registry office to complete the application if you are not comfortable with using the online process.https://www.alberta.ca/affordability-action-plan.aspx
