How do I apply for Employee Housing?
To be eligible for Employee Housing, you must meet all of the following criteria;
- Be a full-time Banff Lodging Company employee;
- Be 18 years of age or older;
- Be able to provide a Canadian Criminal Record Check that indicates “negative” (i.e. no criminal history)
Criminal record Checks can be obtained from the RCMP Banff Detachment.
If you meet the eligibility criteria for Employee Housing, you can request a place by speaking with the manager that provided you with an offer of employment. You will be notified of your move-in appointment (normally within the first week of beginning work) by the Employee Housing team.
How much does Employee Housing cost?
Employee Housing rent is subsidized by Banff Lodging Company and rates for a shared room begin at $13 per night. A $150 damage deposit plus rent will be paid via bi-weekly payroll deduction. New bed linens and towels are available for purchase from the Employee Housing Office.
