Better Every Day 2023 Q2 - The Sport Issue

Message from the City Manager


Part of our commitment to Calgarians is understanding that participation in sport has extensive benefits for our community. In addition to the physical benefits, sport can be employed to achieve a large range of societal goals, increase social capital, and advance inclusion and belonging. At The City, we believe that investing in sport enriches the quality of life for every Calgarian and fosters the healthy development of individuals, communities, and our economy.

Our strategic partnerships with Sport Calgary, Tourism Calgary, and community sport collaborators are instrumental in realizing our ambitions, ensuring Calgary remains a hub for innovation and excellence. Together, we will implement strategies so everyone can engage in sport, irrespective of their background or circumstances. We are working to close the gaps in sport infrastructure, developing sport environments that can serve Calgarians year-round. The amenity mix for the Foothills Multisport Fieldhouse was approved by Council on July 4, 2023, a significant milestone for this priority capital project. The project responds to an existing gap in indoor practice and play space, supports emerging and growth sports, and allows Calgary to continue to attract major sporting events like the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games.

Together with our partners, we envision a vibrant sport and event culture that fills each quadrant of our city. We recognize residents of Calgary want inclusive and welcoming sport opportunities and accessible places to be active throughout their lives. In this issue of Better Every Day we share stories of how we are on track to support Calgary as a true sport city and how sports contribute to making life better every day, creating a legacy for future generations.
