About the Commission
The Commission is a project of the Calgary Chamber
Calgary is a growing city, and this puts a strain on its existing infrastructure. What infrastructure investments are needed to maintain a high quality of life in Calgary? How should residents, businesses, and users pay for the City’s expanding infrastructure needs? The Citizens Commission hopes to bring residents of Calgary together to consider these questions. The Commission will develop recommendations outlining the infrastructure priorities for residents of Calgary and the revenue tools the City could use to pay for them in a fair and sustainable manner.
