Good Neighbour Practices

If you are new to the city, a long-term Calgarian, homeowner or tenant looking for more information about your responsibilities within your neighbourhood, this quick reference will get you started. Linked below are frequently referenced bylaws which set a minimum standard for neighbourhoods and help ensure that all Calgarians live in safe, clean and healthy communities.

On and around your property

Home improvement

Public behaviour

Responsible pet ownership

Bylaws are created to protect public health and safety, the environment and public and private property. While informal communication with neighbours is a simple way of addressing neighbourhood concerns, in situations where this is not a viable option, Calgarians can call 311 to make an inquiry or to file a complaint for investigation.

Alternatively, the Community Mediation Calgary Society offers support in resolving neighbourhood issues.​​​​​​​​​
