The CEO of the Urban Development Institute, Calgary, weighs in on housing solutions.

Guy Huntingford says there is a fix for Calgary’s housing crunch, and the building industry is prepared to be part of the solution.

“We really are getting close to hitting a breaking point here when it’s really going to hamper our economic growth and quality of life.”
