dc.description.abstractThis study was undertaken to capture the evolution of rental housing policy in Calgary from 1980 to 1984. The purpose of the research is to generate potential rental housing policies for the City for the future. Hence, the writer used historical description from which arose the analyses. Three themes pervade the analyses: (1) rental housing policy in Calgary was informal and reactive to the changing socio- economic-political considerations of the housing industry; (2) rental housing policy in Calgary was unclear and implicit only in the workings of the different policy actors; and, (3) rental housing policy in Calgary could not provide an adequate supply of affordable and appropriate housing for low-income households during the "boom" years. Three scenario-frameworks ('no-growth', 'slow-growth', and 'moderate'-growth) were designed and used to formulate and evaluate possible rental housing policies, using three objectives. The third objective, encouraging home ownership in tenants, forms the crux of the recommendations in the final and concluding chapter. Summary recommendations based upon Chapters III and IV are organized in seven policy areas: rental housing planning; neighbourhood change; maintenance, rehabiltation and conversion; environment quality; stimulation of private rental participation; administrative mechanisms; and economic or inentation for planning.
