Over the past few years, we have been working towards becoming One City, One Voice through our common vision, purpose, values and brand. Now, we are working together as “One” for “Calgary”.

Better serving citizens, communities and customers and doing it in a way that is cohesive, collaborative and integrated is what being “One Calgary” is all about.

Part of this includes our shift to a service-based view of our multi-year plans and budgets for 2019-2022. This will make it easier for you to see how individual services are performing. 

Together, we will deliver a comprehensive set of service plans and budgets that considers the citizen first, and contributes to making Calgary a great place to make a living, and a great place to make a life.

Three conversations, One Calgary

Three conversations, One Calgary is the framework of The City's Strategic Plan for 2019-2022. It's a way to demonstrate how delivering great services contributes back to Calgary's quality of life.
