User fees and rates

2018-2019 user fees and rates for City of Calgary services

User fees and rates for City services including utilities, transit, parks and recreation are:

  1. effective January 1, 2019 (except where indicated),

  2. applicable to Calgarians depending on the specific services they use, and

  3. approved by Council as part of the 2019-2022 business plans and budgets and adjusted annually in response to changes in the local economy.

Council’s approved user fees and rates take into account the effects the economic downturn is having on Calgarians.

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 eligibility for five City programs with one application.
