New recreation facilities

A great city for all its citizens must have great public recreation facilities in every corner of our city. Early in his first term, Mayor Nenshi championed the funding and building to four new recreation facilities​ in underserved areas of Calgary. As of fall 2018, all four are open and serving Calgarians with exceptional and accessible spaces and programming.

Affordable housing

Every Calgarian should have a home. The new affordable housing strategy for Calgary has seen 2275 new affordable rental units built and made homeownership more attainable for over 800 Calgary families. New rules for secondary suites​ also make it easier to create safe and legal secondary suite housing in every part of the city. With Mayor Nenshi's leadership and support, our citizens are finding, getting and keeping a permanent residence they can call their own.

Crime and safety

Safety of Calgarians is the priority of the municipal government and Mayor Nenshi. In working with The Calgary Police Service, 50 new officers have been hired. More focus on Community Policing has made neighbourhoods better. Extra Calgary Transit Officers make commuting a better experience. And more support for community, neighbourhood, social and at-risk programs help prevent crime before it happens. Safe communities make our city better, every day.
