The Municipal Government Act grants Council the power to pass bylaws. Bylaws are created as a way to address issues and concerns of Calgarians. They are created to protect the environment, public health, public safety, or to maintain order throughout Calgary.

The City Clerk’s Office maintains The City’s official record of all Bylaws. All copies of active Bylaws are available on calgary.ca. To find a Bylaw that is not listed below, you can search for all bylaws here.
