Mental Health and Addictions

Every day we witness the impacts of mental health issues, while all of us work towards mental wellness. This campaign will focus on increasing access to mental health and addiction recovery resources as well as other ways to reduce adverse stress and promote mental wellness. 

Social Isolation and Building Community

Social isolation is a growing problem in our city.  How can we build stronger communities? How do we overcome our divisions - whether they come from race, class, religion, or neighborhood? How can we welcome our differences so that they become our strengths?  

Truth and Reconciliation

It is time that we face the truth of our colonial past and how it has impacted all of us. We must not just face our past, we also need to build new, life-giving relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people so that together we can shape a relationship in which all can thrive. 

We Build Leaders

“I went to the training and discovered practical ways that I can build relationships and take action to bring about change in our city.”

Learn About Leadership Training

The Calgary Alliance for the Common Good is everyday people taking powerful action together for the common good.

We develop the diverse voices of our community, building relationships across religious, racial, class, and neighborhood lines.

Then we knit them together one by one to build the power to make the positive changes they want to see in our community, making our shared home a better place to live and thrive.
