Translations of the Election Guide

  • The City of Calgary is continually working on making our processes and practices more inclusive, fair, equitable and accessible for all​.
  • This is the very first municipal election where Elections Calgary offered translations of the Election Guide. Translations were done in top 10 languages based on the Calgary Language Map which shows the percentage of the population in Calgary wards, communities and dissemination areas that speak a language other than English most often at home.
  • We continuously evaluate and assess our election resources; translations of the Election Guide in additional languages may be available soon.
