YYC MattersFederal Election 2019

Building federal government support for all Calgarians

Here you'll find an overview of the issues that matter to Calgary in the 2019 federal election. They’re based on your input and our interests as your municipal government. We then formed them as questions to find out what each party, if elected, will do to support Calgary. Each political party with candidates in Calgary and a seat in the 42nd Canadian Parliament are receiving the questions.

We invite you to review the issues to see how decisions made in Ottawa impact our quality of life here in Calgary. We do this to help you understand what’s at stake, so you can make the best choice for you, your family and our city’s future on voting day.

We also encourage you to raise these matters with the local candidates you meet. You matter. Calgary matters. Let’s work together to get Calgary and Alberta on the national agenda.

Election Day is Monday, October 21, 2019. To find out where to vote, a list of candidates in your electoral district and additional voter information, visit Elections Canada.
