OUR STRATEGY One City: coming together

Our government has three groups: Council, Administration, and citizens. Each group plays a vital role in our city’s purpose and function.

Council:  provides leadership and direction
Administration:  manages and delivers services
Citizens: identify and fund priority services

Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody. Jane Jacobs
Writer and urban-planning activist​

Working together

The relationship (and conversations) between Council, Administration and citizens are key in making Calgary work:

Council and Calgarians: Listen to citizen aspirations and set direction based on shared community values and priorities

Administration and Calgarians: Show value in the delivery and management of services to citizens

Council and Administration: Ensure strategic direction and alignment of Calgarians’ values into municipal results

Building towards a Calgary that works for all Calgarians.
