Exploring the state of rental housing in Edmonton one Year later.


Executive Summary

The Edmonton Social Planning Council (ESPC) conducted a survey of renters in the Edmonton area from April

16 to May 31, 2008. The survey was created as a follow up to the Renters’ Listening Forums held in May 2007

in response to the rental housing crisis at the time. The intention of the Edmonton Renters’ Survey was to

explore how the rental housing situation has changed over the past year. A diverse group of 727 renters

responded to the survey; their responses provided detailed insights, both quantitative and qualitative, into the

eight questions derived from some of the key issues identified at the 2007 forums.
