1. A City Charter for Calgary

Alberta’s largest cities face many challenges to continued growth and prosperity, and those challenges cannot be successfully met under the current legislative and financial framework. In June 2012, The City of Calgary, The City of Edmonton, and The Government of Alberta signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) committing all three parties to:
  • having discussion about developing a new working relationship that would clarify roles and responsibilities between the parties
  • better allocate resources to match responsibilities and improve cooperation
A City Charter for Calgary and Edmonton that addresses these challenges would improve services to citizens and keep our communities prosperous, vibrant, and competitive.

Question 1(a): Do you support City Charters for Calgary and Edmonton?

Question 1(b): How do you see this new legislative framework benefiting citizens?
