Sport for Life
The Sport for Life Policy was developed with the sport community and approved by City Council in 2018 to create sport opportunities for all Calgarians.
The policy focuses on working with partners to provide Calgarians access to participate in sports.
We want to build towards a city where all Calgarians have access to opportunities and places to be active and enjoy the benefits of participating in sports throughout their life.
