Community Standards - What we do
We create standards for Calgarians to live by. These standards have been developed to help us work with you in order to build beautiful, healthy, and safe communities in Calgary. We educate and regulate Calgary businesses, dog and cat owners, the taxi industry, and every-day citizens.
We provide a number of animal-related services to Calgarians. These include: licensing for cats and dogs, sheltering cats and dogs that have been impounded, and adoptions for those cats and dogs that have not been claimed by their owners.
We set standards for acceptable behaviour in Calgary in order to promote healthy and safe communities. Our bylaws include (but are not limited to) standards related to noise
, untidy properties
, and animal (pet) behaviour
Compliance, Taxi & Livery
Our Compliance Services team investigates and resolves complaints related to business licenses and development inspections. They also hold the taxi industry accountable
for keeping both Calgarians and taxi drivers safe.
