Affordable Housing Committee

The City’s Affordable Housing Committee (FAHC) was created because the Mayor and City Councillors saw the need for the availability of more affordable housing units to ensure that every Frederictonian has a safe and affordable place to call home. 

The FAHC recognizes the importance of improving housing affordability across the entire housing continuum for all residents and acts as an advocate for those who:

  • are housing vulnerable
  • have recently immigrated to Canada
  • require affordable rent
  • have special housing needs
  • are in the circumstance of poverty
