The Calgary Chamber takes on complex municipal, provincial, and national issues that impact the business community.
Where your voice is heard
We work to ensure that families and businesses can thrive in Calgary, now and in the future, by having a voice on municipal policies.
We advocate for policies that provide certainty for business and support growth, resiliency, and a high quality of life for Albertans.
We put forward ideas from our business community that help advance Canada’s global position as competitive, innovative, and responsible.
From Challenge to Change
On September 20th, Canadians will choose the way forward for Canada. From Challenge to Change is a guide to the issues and policies businesses believe are important for Canadians including economic recovery, attracting talent, protecting the environment, reviewing our tax system and facilitating trade and market access.
In October, Calgarians will determine what kind of city we want to be. This election, we can realize our potential as vibrant, inclusive & prosperous. Our priorities: investing in talent, rebalancing property tax, revitalizing downtown, advancing inclusion, and making #yyc a great place to do business.
Calgary businesses have borne the brunt of an increasing tax burden that threatens their viability. Our property tax system needs long-term, structural change and the Chamber has ideas on how we get there.
We believe that vibrant business leads to vibrant communities. 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.
Enable business to grow and compete
We promote economic policies that encourage business growth and transformation, to make Canada the choice for investment.
Every quarter, we dive deeper into the issues that are impacting our business community at the local, provincial, national, and even international level. Step beyond the headlines of the day and gain a deeper understanding.
