1. Re: living in Jasper

Welcome to the TripAdvisor forums, Richard!

To occupy residential housing (which can be owned by anyone), you have to meet the definition of an "eligible resident"; here is the page with information from the Jasper National Park website: pc.gc.ca/eng/…plan5c.aspx

The town's footprint is fixed under federal legislation; housing, both availability and affordability, has been a chronic problem... since before I arrived over 30 years ago, and it's still ongoing, with only four more plots of land available for residential development.

Note that these forums are for travel-related discussion, not relocation, so this thread may be removed by the moderators. Feel free to PM me if you have further questions.
