What is the difference between the Bow Valley Regional Housing levy and the municipal housing levy?
Bow Valley Regional Housing (BVRH) is a provincial commission with five member municipalities including Banff. They provide seniors housing in the Bow Valley region. For 2015, the BVRH levy is $304,508. The municipal housing levy supports community housing initiatives within Banff. The approved 2015 budget for this portion of municipal taxes is $49,250. This year, the levy has been listed separately from the rest of the municipal tax to provide transparency regarding the cost to property owners for current and future housing initiatives.

The other two portions of property taxes are the municipal levy for services such a police, fire, recreation and snow removal and the Alberta School Foundation Fund (ASFF) which is a provincial education tax. The 2015 municipal levy is $16,108,580 and the 2015 ASFF levy is $6,112,199.
