The City of Calgary is cutting red tape to make sure any interaction with us is better, easier and faster for our citizens, businesses and employees. This means transforming government and improving services to enable businesses and citizens to thrive in our great city.
Time and cost savings
Cutting red tape and streamlining processes provides many benefits for citizens, business and government but when it comes right down to it, the main objective is to save valuable money and time. Learn more about our savings (as of February 2013).
