Welcome to the Job Resource Centre 2016 Staff Housing Guide

Purpose of the Project The Staff Housing Guide is an inventory of employers in the Bow Valley who offer accommodation to their entry-level employees. Many newcomers to this area are looking for work as well as a place to live. The Guide is intended to inform job seekers about the staff housing situation and accommodation options in the area. This Guide was produced by the Job Resource Centre with the financial contribution from the Government of Alberta and the support of Bow Valley College.

Structure of the Guide This Guide organizes employers alphabetically by the four major communities in the Bow Valley: Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise, and Kananaskis. The description of accommodation for each business begins with demographics and staff numbers. This data is subject to change and reflects the staff information collected during the spring of 2016. The accommodation offered is also subject to change and could be limited during peak season when employers have fewer available rooms. This might also affect the options they offer such as choice of roommates or couples accommodation.

Evaluation Process This project connected with most tourism and hospitality businesses from Kananaskis to Lake Louise, including the towns of Canmore and Banff.

Each business in this Guide was invited to participate in the following three components:

Employer Survey An employer was asked to complete a thorough employer survey. The purpose was to describe the accommodation, including the number of residents who share amenities, furniture provided, and perks offered. They also included their current demographics data and staff numbers.

Employee Survey (optional) Many businesses chose to include an evaluation of their accommodation. They were rated on the security, quality of personal space, maintenance and cleanliness, social conditions, and the overall assessment of their staff housing. The ratings were compiled from the employee survey results that were given to staff currently living in accommodation.

On-site Review (optional) Finally, there was an on-site visit with a Job Resource Centre reviewer to verify the data collected in the surveys and provide their own ratings.

Employee Rating The Employee Ratings section was compiled with data collected from the employee surveys, on-site reviews, or both. The averages from all the data created the star ratings, rounded to the nearest 0.5. A reviewer’s results had the same weight as an employee. Consideration was taken into ratings when compared to other staff accommodations.

Living in the Bow Valley

The Bow Valley is a beautiful place to call home. With the Canadian Rockies in your backyard, adventure is seemingly endless. These mountains have brought millions of people to the area since Banff National Park was established in 1885. There is plenty to do in the winter including skiing and snowboarding, ice climbing, ice fishing, aurora watching, and cross-country skiing. But the summers are considered peak season with hiking, biking, climbing, paddling, and the many local events. There is also a vibrant arts scene in the Rockies. Galleries, art centres, markets, and public spaces host works from local and international artists and Canadian musicians often stop through to play the bars, coffee shops, and stages at The Banff Centre. For a region with such a small population, the Bow Valley is home to workers from all over the world. Many people come with working holiday visas and stay for some time. Canadians from across the country also find their way west to experience the beauty and lifestyle. The majority of employment opportunities are in the hospitality industry as tourism is the most prominent economic driver of the region. The Bow Valley labour market often suffers from seasonal staff shortages during the summer months, partly attributed to a lack of staff housing. Due to high demand, finding accommodation in this area can sometimes be a difficult and expensive prospect. In all fairness, providing staff accommodation is not easy for employers. Housing is expensive and requires management and regular maintenance. In turn, employers have to subsidize staff accommodation to keep it affordable for workers. In 2013 and 2014, Canmore and Banff’s accommodation experienced a 0% vacancy rate (a healthy vacancy rate is considered to be between 3% and 5%). Currently, Banff and Canmore town councils are making it a priority to obtain more affordable accommodation which will help alleviate this problem. 2

What to Expect The cost of living is generally higher than in other Alberta communities. Average rental rates Banff Canmore 1 bedroom $1,224 $1,408 2 bedroom $1,972 $1,854 3 bedroom $2,144 $2,387 Studio/Bachelor $957 $942 Roommate/Shared $856 $859 According to the Job Resource Centre’s Labour Market Review for spring 2016.

Based on the data collected for this Staff Housing Guide in the spring of 2016, the average rent cost in staff housing was about $405 per month. The types of rooms offered vary, but in Banff the most common type of bedroom is dorm-style. About 66% of the Banff bedrooms we reviewed for this project have two or more beds. In Canmore, approximately 70% of the bedrooms we reviewed were private but residents shared amenities like kitchens and bathrooms. Generally, we found that staff accommodation was a cost-effective way to live in the Bow Valley.

Short Term Accommodation While looking for a job and/or housing, here are a couple of options for short term accommodation. HI-Banff Alpine Centre – Hostelling International has a job seeker package costing $393 for 14 nights shared accommodation, which can be renewed. The package includes a one-year Hostelling International Membership Card, 1 free night for two in a Wilderness Hostel, free resume printing and faxing, and a free local bus pass (valid for the duration of your stay). If you find a place to stay during the job seeker package, unused nights will be refundable at a special rate. HI-Banff also offers dorm-style bedrooms at $34.89 for members and $38.38 for non-members. Basic private rooms are $80.79 for members and $88.88 for non-members. Rates change with season and availability.


The Banff YWCA has a job seeker dorm-room package for $160/week and private bedroom and bathroom for $470/week. Dorm-room nightly rates are $31.40 for members and $35 for non-members. Private room nightly rates are $68 for members and $75 for nonmembers. Rates change with season and availability.

http://www.servicealberta.gov.ab.ca/pdf/RTA/ RTA_Handbook.pdf

The Banff International Hostel has dorm-style beds mid-week available for $32 and $36 on weekends. Private bedrooms are $97 mid-week and $172 weekends. The weekly rate is $179, which includes breakfast and Wi-Fi. Rates change with season and availability.

Residential Tenancies Act and Staff Housing

HI-Lake Louise Alpine Centre has dormitory beds for $30.50 for members and $32.55 for non-members. Private rooms are $94/person for members and $103.40/person for non-members based on double occupancy. 21 day maximum stay. HI membership is $25/year.

For more information on the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA), you may call the Consumer Contact Centre toll free in Alberta at 1.877.427.4088.

There is one important rule in the Act that pertains to staff housing in particular. It states that a landlord who intends to terminate an employee’s tenancy in staff accommodation must give the employee written notice of termination of accommodation of at least: • one week for employment of more than 3 months,

but less than 2 years;

• two weeks for employment of 2 years or more, but less than 4 years;

The Alpine Club of Canada offers dorm-style bedroom nightly rates of $15 for members and $21 for non-members. Private rooms for $75 for members and $85 for non-members. Two week maximum stay. Rates change with season and availability. Alpine Club membership is $38/year.

• four weeks for employment of 4 years or more, but less than 6 years;

Tenant Rights & Responsibilities

• eight weeks for employment of 10 years or more.

There are some common rules and regulations that apply to all landlords and tenants in Alberta, and these rules apply to staff accommodation as well. The link below contains useful tips and info about: • Moving in and out • Substantial breach by tenants and/or landlords • Proper notice to end a periodic tenancy • Security deposits • Eviction

• A checklist for tenants to better understand what they need to know before they move into their new home (last page of handbook) http://www.servicealberta.gov.ab.ca/pdf/ tipsheets/Information_for_tenants.pdf

Residential Tenancies Act Handbook The Residential Tenancies Act was written to create a rental housing system that protects tenants and landlords and promotes investment in Alberta’s rental housing market. A shortened handbook defining the rules and regulations can be viewed here:

• five weeks for employment of 6 years or more, but less than 8 years; • six weeks for employment of 8 years or more, but less than 10 years; and

Banff In 1985, 100 years after its establishment, Banff National Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site by the United Nations. Nestled in this park is the town of Banff. Many of Canada’s best-known outdoor athletes, adventurers, landscape photographers, and writers live in Banff, and the community is vibrant and rich with their stories and creativity.

Banff in order to reside and this rule has helped create a thriving community in the tiny mountain town.

In 1883, three Canadian Pacific Railway workers stumbled upon some natural hot springs on the side of a mountain. Two years later, the Canadian government protected the area around the pools. This was the birthplace of Canada’s national park system.

town of Banff.

Banff National Park is 6,500 square kilometres of protected land with a wide range of activities available from white-water rafting to horseback riding, skiing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and more. While the mountains are vast, Banff itself is very concentrated. On Banff Avenue, the main street, boutiques and restaurants mix with hotels and souvenir shops, nightclubs, and cafés. Bear Street features the town movie theatre, summer street market, restaurants and bars. Within blocks of downtown, the public library and a number of well-loved museums are home to Banff’s colourful mountain history. Tourism and hospitality, as an industry, is the economic engine of this area. Banff has approximately 9,400 full and part-time residents but many more people live in town in the summer. There’s a ‘need to reside’ clause that states all residents must own a business or work in

• At 4,537 feet, Banff is the highest town in Canada. • Banff National Park welcomes between 3 and

4 million visitors every year.

• 9 out of 10 of employed residents work within the • Many residents have more than one job. • 57% of homes are occupied by renters. • Banff is very walkable. Based on the data we

collected for this project, the average time to walk to work from staff accommodation is about 8 minutes and the average walk to downtown is about 10 minutes.

• By car from Banff, Calgary is about 125 km, Lake

Louise is about 60 km, and Canmore is about 25 km. • Roam Transit is a bus system within Banff and also

operates a daily commuter bus service between Banff and neighbouring Canmore (about a half hour drive).

• Summer is the busiest season, followed by winter.

Spring and fall are considered “shoulder seasons.” Job opportunities are plentiful in the spring leading up to the summer season.

Canmore At 13,000 permanent and 3,900 non-permanent residents, Canmore is now the largest community in the Alberta Rockies. Its proximity to Calgary – only a one-hour drive away – has made it a popular destination for regional visitors looking for a weekend getaway, as well as an accessible home base for adventure in the Rockies for international tourists.

• By car from Canmore, Calgary is about 100 km, Lake

The town was established along the railway line as a coal mining town in 1884 and thrived on the industry until the coal mines closed in 1979. The Nordic events of the 1988 Olympics were held in Canmore, showcasing the town internationally as an outdoor mountain-lifestyle destination, and kick-starting the tourism and health and wellness industries. Canmore is now well-known for mountain biking, skiing and snowboarding, Nordic skiing, climbing, running, hiking, and other self-propelled outdoor adventure sports.

• Canmore is more expansive than Banff. Based on

There are four main business centres in town: Main Street, the cultural hub which features retail shops, art galleries, cafés, and restaurants; Railway Ave, where you will mostly find grocery stores, Elevation Place (the popular recreation centre), banks, and home furnishings; Elk Run Industrial Park, the town’s manufacturing hub; and Bow Valley Trail, where most of the town’s hotels and chain restaurants are located.

Louise is about 85 km, and Banff is about 25 km.

• 50% of employed residents work within the town

of Canmore.

• Many residents have more than one job. • 30% of homes are occupied by renters.

the data we collected for this project, the average time to walk to work from staff accommodation is about 17 minutes and the average walk to downtown is about 15 minutes.

• Roam Transit operates a daily commuter bus service

between Canmore and neighbouring Banff (about a half hour drive), but there is currently no bus system within Canmore.

Tourism is the most prominent driver of the economy in Canmore. Most entry-level employment opportunities will be in the tourism and hospitality or health and wellness industries.

Lake Louise The blue-green waters of Lake Louise and neighbouring Moraine Lake are emblematic of the pristine mountain landscapes for which the Canadian Rockies are known. The iconic views bring millions of visitors a year to the tiny hamlet of Lake Louise. The establishment formed along the railway in the late 1800s and has become an internationally renowned mountain mecca, offering a tremendous range of recreational and sightseeing opportunities for visitors including cross country skiers, hikers, mountaineers, and climbers. The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise – the area’s original hub for tourism – was built in 1913 and made the grandeur of Lake Louise accessible to those visitors less inclined towards mountaineering and outdoor adventure. The hamlet of Lake Louise is separated into two communities. The main community, known as The Village, is located just off of the Trans-Canada Highway. It has a small shopping centre that includes a grocery store, bakery, bar, restaurants, and a clothing and sporting goods store. The second community is at a higher elevation and is centered around the Chateau Lake Louise, directly adjacent to Lake Louise. There’s also a recreation centre that offers tennis courts, a baseball diamond, and a new arena.

• At 5,033 feet, Lake Louise is the highest community

in Canada. • Lake Louise has approximately 1,200 residents. • Lake Louise is situated within Banff National Park

which welcomes between 3 and 4 million visitors every year.

• By car from Lake Louise, Calgary is about 185 km,

Banff is about 60 km, and Canmore is about 85 km. • The Village is very walkable. Based on the data we

collected for this project, the average time to walk to work from staff accommodation is about 9 minutes and the average walk to downtown is about 11 minutes.

• The distance from The Village to Chateau Lake Louise is

4 km (uphill).

• It’s a remote community and many staff find that

owning a car is helpful and handy.

Kananaskis Kananaskis Country encompasses more than 4,000 square kilometres of wildlands on the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies and is an ideal base from which to explore some of its renowned sights. In comparison to Banff or Canmore, living in Kananaskis Village will feel remote, as it has a population of roughly 250 people, almost all of whom are staff at one of the local hotels, ski hill, Alberta Parks campgrounds, or other businesses. The basics needed to live in Kananaskis are available in the Village. However, it is common for staff to drive into Canmore or Calgary once a week to do major shopping as the grocery store in the Village is quite minimal. Facilities include basketball courts, tennis courts, a baseball diamond, a pub, a convenience store, a post office, and an outdoor adventure shop.

• It’s a remote community and many staff find that

owning a car is helpful and handy. • By car from Kananaskis Village, Calgary is about

100 km, Canmore is about 55 km, and Banff is about 80 km. • Nearly all of the housing available in Kananaskis

Village is staff housing. • The total area of Kananaskis Country is 4,000 square

kilometres and the population density is only 0.1 persons/km2. • Based on the data we collected for this project,

the average time to walk to work from staff accommodation is about 4 minutes and the average walk to downtown is about 5 minutes.

Living in such a remote area is also a blessing. The crowds are not as abundant as in Banff, but it’s not due to a lack of spectacular scenery or opportunity for backcountry travel. Kananaskis has epic hiking, paddling, biking, horseback riding, white-water rafting, skiing, snowshoeing, and fishing. The community in Kananaskis Village is close-knit and you can look forward to live music, barbeques, and other ongoing staff events.

According to the data we gathered from participating businesses in Kananaskis for the 2016 Staff Housing Guide:
