  1. effective January 1, 2017 (except where indicated),
  2. applicable to Calgarians depending on the specific services they use, and

Council’s approved adjustments to 2017 user fees and rates, take into account the effects the economic downturn is having on Calgarians and provide relief on some city fees.

Fair Entry is available for low income Calgarians. Fair Entry is an application process for City-subsidized programs and services. This process will assess your income elibibility for five City programs with one application.
