What is the Civic Tour Program?
The City of Calgary offers tours of the Civic Complex to school groups, community groups, seniors, service groups, new Canadians, and visitors to Calgary. During the 90-minute tour, participants have the opportunity to learn a variety of interesting facts about the City’s buildings and also fascinating insights about Calgary’s municipal government. This hands-on learning experience also includes a tour of the Council Chamber.
Tours are offered between the months of September-May on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.
How can I get involved?
All of our tours are conducted by trained volunteers. The City of Calgary City Clerk’s Office is looking now for new volunteer tour guides to join the program and help us deliver this aspect of our public service.
If you share an interest in municipal government, history, or local developments and have a passion for community education and engagement, we would love to hear from you! Please view our
volunteer position description for more information. Weekday daytime availability is required.
As a tour guide, you will meet new people, learn about Calgary’s history and government, and gain new skills. We offer training for the volunteer tour guide position, free parking at the Civic Parkade during tours, and vouchers for our Corporate Gift Room.
