Calling members to participate in the
2018 Housing Cost Index Survey
Why we need you to participate
BILD Alberta is creating a Housing Cost Index to identify the financial impact of government policies on land development and new home construction. This preliminary survey will provide further information on the project and determine those who are willing to participate in the more comprehensive survey later this year.

This information will increase the strength and credibility of our advocacy and recommendations made on policy matters such as:
  • Levies;
  • Inclusionary Housing;
  • Approvals;
  • Financing due to delays;
  • Changes to the building code; and
  • Increasing costs related to materials or labour.

The goal is to conduct a similar project every two years to continually assess the costs posing the greatest burden on the industry and new home buyers.
What we need from you
This project will require members to provide information on costs associated with land development and home construction. BILD Alberta has retained Banister Research Ltd. to undertake the survey and ensure all data is anonymous prior to providing it to the association.

Members who volunteer to participate in the project will be given access to a comprehensive report free of charge.

Preliminary surveys must be completed by October 9, 2018.
