In a healthy and green city we steward our air, land, and water while encouraging healthy lifestyles for all Calgarians. In 2016, 97 per cent of Calgarians rated the overall state of Calgary's environment as good according to the 2016 Citizen Satisfaction Survey.
The City is one of many organizations that can influence the quality of life in our community. To help Calgary become a healthy and green city, The City focuses on the natural environment and healthy living. The City will use indicators to help us understand whether or not we are moving in the right direction towards achieving each quality of life result (as The City works to define indicators and quality of life result areas, Council Priorities will be used to frame quality of life in Calgary).
There are many City of Calgary programs and services that contribute to Calgary as a healthy and green city. Find information about some of these, including performance measures, below.
