User fees and rates for 2020

User fees are paid by Calgarians (or visitors to Calgary) who use and benefit individually from certain City goods and services. Some examples are public transit fares, recreation fees, and water and waste disposal services.

User fees and rates for City services are effective January 1, 2020 (except where indicated) and are applicable depending on the specific service they use. They are approved by Council as part of the 2019-2022 service plans and budgets and adjusted annually in response to changes in the local economy.
