Staff housing is available for entry level employees hired through The Working Holiday Club, but it is not guaranteed for all positions.  By mid-September your Department Manager will contact you to confirm the details. Employees can also find their own accommodation within the community of Banff.

None of our staff housing is on-hill, but we have a complimentary staff bus that picks up our employees all through town and brings them up to work. Norquay is an easy 5 minute drive from Banff so our employees get to enjoy everything Banff has to offer.

Norquay offers clean and affordable accommodation for most full-time employees at a number of locations around Banff. All of our residences are fully furnished, complete with household appliances, and generally include a shared room and access to communal kitchen and living areas.  Our dedicated Housing team works to ensure employees who choose to reside in employee housing have a safe, comfortable, and respectful place to call home.

Please contact for any questions regarding staff housing, or inquiries about how to find a place to live in town.
