Every day, Calgary’s City Council makes decisions that impact you and your everyday life. Find out more about City Council and get involved in this decision-making process.
What is City Council and what do they do?
City Council is the main governing and legislative body for the City of Calgary, and they’re responsible for making important decisions on your behalf. Council regularly meets to discuss issues like policies, bylaws, the City Budget, and major projects to be undertaken by City departments. Council is made up of the Mayor and 14 City Aldermen who represent each of the city’s 14 wards.
Did you know that you’re welcome to attend any public Council meeting?
Council meetings are normally held the first and third Mondays of the month at 9:30 a.m. You can view the full Council Calendar for more information. Before attending a council meeting, please review the Council meeting protocol. We also offer information on meeting locations, presenting to Council and more.
You can also watch Council meetings live on Calgary.ca (the video stream is only available when Council is in session) and Shaw Digital T.V. Channel 89. Meeting agendas, minutes and video archives are also available.
What else can I do to get involved?
You can also volunteer with the City of Calgary in various ways. Consider volunteering as a census taker or applying for a position on our Boards, Commissions and Committees.
