Municipal Campaign

In the 2021 municipal election our members and institutions are focused on engaging with as many Calgarians as possible: not only to enrich our shared democratic discourse but to encourage them to exercise their vote.

Mental Health and Addictions

Lack of support in the area of mental illness and addiction have been a growing concern for many years.  With the arrival of COVID-19 many experts are concerned about an 'echo pandemic' of mental health challenges.

Truth and Reconciliation

Many steps with one goal Our Truth & Reconciliation Research Action Team encompasses both Indigenous Elders and Community Members and Non-Indigenous Leaders that continually examine steps we can take as a society to address the consequences of our ongoing legacy of colonization.

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.
