City Council is continuously making investments in community safety

Downtown Safety Leadership Table


The Downtown Safety Leadership Table is a group of downtown leaders brought together to help identify ways to address safety in downtown Calgary. The group was established in September 2023. In the seven months that followed they met with over 45 community and social service partners and providers. These discussions helped the group to understand the issues impacting downtown Calgary, the scope of existing services and investments that are underway, and what solutions might further support safety and vibrancy in our downtown.

Final report

City action and next steps

In November 2023, City Council made investments into community safety and wellbeing, such as approving the Transit Public Safety Strategy and Housing Strategy and funding the Mental Health and Addiction Strategy. In addition, the Chief Administrative Officer has also outlined key corporate priorities, including Community Safety and Wellbeing and the downtown.

Administration is well equipped to act upon the recommendations the Downtown Safety Leadership Table put forward. The City will take some time to review the recommendations and will release an implementation plan in early April.
