City approves more supports for Calgary's business community

On June 1, City Council approved another $15.9 million in a growing list of municipal supports for Calgary’s business community. The package provides targeted financial support to business owners as they look to re-open, in sectors impacted most by the pandemic.

The City is supporting restaurants, pubs, bars, fitness centres, and entertainment establishments, including nightclubs and live music venues, in their reopening efforts through a grant, as well as hotel and motel property owners through a 2021 tax deferral program.

The City will start accepting applications for the grant program on July 2, 2021.

Business Sector Support task force

The City of Calgary working with City Councillors, partners and business stakeholders from various industries has created a Business Sector Support task force. We are working to:

  • Serve as a conduit to the business community to share their immediate needs.
  • Make recommendations on short and medium-term solutions to support businesses and advocacy to provincial and federal governments.
  • Advise on, and implement, ongoing communications to various types of businesses; marketing strategies to immediately support businesses; and communications to Calgarians regarding business support.

We encourage you to provide feedback when contacted to and share our updates within your networks to help support our local business and economy.
