This month we marked one year since the first COVID-19 case was discovered in Calgary. While it has been a year of challenges and uncertainty, we are optimistic about the future of our city, our business community, and our organization.
In this edition of Influence, we’re focused on Calgary’s future. We sit down with experts to discuss how working collaboratively can lead to restoring community and prosperity. This includes exploring options to address city property tax rates, including strategies to examine costs, revenues and needed reforms to our municipal tax system. We also explore the benefits of public transit, and a made-in-Canada solution for market access. I am also pleased to provide an update on our organization’s strategic planning, our search for a new President and CEO, and how we’re marking our 130th birthday.
On behalf of the Calgary Chamber team, thank you for your continued trust during this unprecedented time. We remain focused on supporting you and advocating on your behalf as we look ahead to new opportunities and challenges in 2021 and beyond.
