Fair Entry, launched in May, provides one window access to five City-subsidized programs for low-income Calgarians. It streamlines the process by reducing the need for repeated applications by citizens.
“Over 35,000 individuals have been approved since Fair Entry was launched six months ago,” says Cynthia Busche-heibert, manager community programs and services with Community & Neighbourhood Services. “People who may have previously faced obstacles to applying, like work schedules or childcare, are now able to overcome those challenges.”
See how the new application process has made a difference in one man’s life:
We anticipate providing subsidized services to roughly 75,000 Calgarians per year through Fair Entry and the convenience of the online process is going to make that easier and more efficient for Calgarians and The City.
