Banff granted land.



The town of Banff has been granted the release of federal lands to create affordable housing.

The land will be leased to the Banff housing corporation, to develop multi-unit, affordable rental properties.

The units must use green housing initiatives in order to have the land released.

The announcement was made this morning by Catherine McKenna, the minister responsible for parks Canada.

The town’s council must approve the offer before construction will begin.
