What is public engagement?

"Engagement” at The City of Calgary is defined as: Purposeful dialogue between The City and citizens and stakeholders to gather information to influence decision making.


Citizen and stakeholder input helps City leaders and decision makers better understand the perspectives, opinions, and concerns of people potentially impacted by City decisions.

The City’s Engage Policy incorporates the following five principles:

  • Accountability
  • Inclusiveness
  • Transparency
  • Commitment
  • Responsiveness
