Calgary is connected and creative.

We use technology and data to improve every aspect of community life – how we move around, how we live and play, how we earn a living and how we interact with the natural environment.

A smart city that works for you

All Calgarians benefit from a smart city. Through innovative solutions, a smart city delivers real value to citizens and businesses.

  • Enhance quality of City services
  • Reduce costs and resource consumption
  • Engage more effectively with citizens
  • Improve quality of life
  • Respond to real-time challenges
  • Increase competitiveness

Calgary is ready for tomorrow

Population growth, citizen expectations for 24/7 access to information and a changing economic landscape are all reasons why The City of Calgary prepares for the future with smart investments and strategies.

We can ensure that our citizens, businesses and visitors are connected through next generation intelligent and digital services.

A smart city is built by all of us – government, educational institutions, industry and you.

We are proud of what’s been done and inspired by what’s to come

We are leveraging technology and data in six key areas throughout the city – mobility, living, people, the economy, governance and the environment. Learn more about how we are working to improve every aspect of community life.
