TTY services (text telephone)

City TTY services are a special communications service reserved for deaf, hard-of-hearing, or speech-impaired people who use a TTY device or personal computer with a modem to communicate.

You can contact most City of Calgary business units directly using a TTY device or personal computer. City TTY services are expanding. Currently, several City business units have direct TTY access, but not all do. Please check this page regularly for the most current listing of TTY telephone numbers.

Need to use TTY when visiting the City of Calgary Municipal Building?

Visit the Information Kiosk on the plaza level . We have a TTY device available for the general public during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, free of charge.
