Municipal Naming Program: Naming City-Owned Buildings & Facilities

Municipal Naming Program

Naming City-Owned Buildings & Facilities

The City of Calgary’s Municipal Naming Program is designed to recognize Calgary’s citizens through the naming of City-owned assets. These names give us a greater connection with our surroundings and a sense of belonging to our community. The permanence of parks, pathways, streets, buildings and other City-owned assets make municipal naming one of the highest forms of recognition for citizens.

Requests for the naming of City assets can be submitted by the public, City employees and City Council. To learn more about the Municipal Naming Program, please email
