Potential bid for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games

The City of Calgary is determining whether it should declare an intent to bid on the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. In order to decide whether there is justifiable benefit in declaring a bid, we are exploring the following:

  • The financial viability of hosting the Games;
  • Possible risks of proceeding with a bid and hosting the Games;
  • Stakeholder and government support; and
  • International Olympic Committee (IOC) requirements.

Our project team will address these items and provide a recommendation to City Council. City Council will also work with the other orders of government and will make a decision to proceed with the bid process or not. More information can be found below about the City's considerations and the Exploration Phase of this process.
