Our Priorities

We are the independent, non-partisan champion for businesses, and work to advance thoughtful public policy to enable Calgary's success.

Vibrant business and community well-being go hand-in-hand.

We advance public policies to enable businesses to start, scale, and compete, which in turn enables our citizens to secure a high quality of life and build strong, resilient communities.

Economic recovery and growth

We envision a diverse and thriving economy where innovation and a strong talent base drive our growth. Calgary’s entrepreneurial spirit will continue to power our economy and thoughtful investments will bring stability, growth and opportunity to our city.

Attract, retain, invest in talent

We envision a vibrant Calgary that develops, retains, and attracts talent from all backgrounds, enabling our city and our people to have the skills needed to thrive in the economy of today and tomorrow.

Let's go

Address climate change through innovation

Our vision is a net-zero world in which the Alberta’s energy industry is competitive and is a leader in innovation and emissions reduction technology. To address climate change and ensure long-term economic prosperity, Alberta will need to lead the energy transition and provide reliable, affordable and clean energy to the world.

Take action

Make it easier to do business

We need to make it simple and straightforward to start, scale-up, and grow a business in Calgary. We also need an ecosystem that facilitates business-to-business and business-to-consumer connections and collaborations.
