Housing Campaign

Our city is in crisis. Did you know that the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation has highlighted that the lowest incomes in Calgary can only truly afford 5% of housing in the city? And the University of Calgary’s residences team has been flooded by over 5,000 applications for housing?

Re-Organizing our Shared Alliance

Every act of organizing is reorganizing. Five years after engaging with our communities since our founding assembly, and uplifting the issues that affect all Calgarians, we're working together from our different faiths, organizations, movements and teams to bring together a focused conversation on what's next.

Environment

The Environment team invites us to imagine a brighter climate future. The Environment team, led by our member organization, the Climate Hub, is asking that the City of Calgary build for not just stimulus but substantive, funded climate action for the betterment of our communities.

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.

See What Makes Us Different

We don’t organize for justice and social change FOR people. We organize for justice and social change WITH people.
