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?  

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.   

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.

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.

Our seniors action team met with City of Calgary administrators on May 27, 2019, to get an update on how the seniors home supports program is advancing. We heard that they will be launching a small pilot in the summer to test out this new system. More communication about the program, and a binder for potential service providers, will be ready by the end of summer. They expect the full program to be ready to launch by snowfall.

Action Teams Now Up and Running

All of our Research Action Teams are now up and running! The first part of this process will be understanding the broad problems that we are tackling, building partnerships, and breaking all of this down to actionable issues. The work has begun and we have had our first research action visits. On behalf of our communities, a big thank you to our leaders who have made a commitment to be a part of this team. Thank you also to our new co-chairs. It is a clear sign of hope that there are leaders in our community who are willing to work for our common Good.
