About Calgary Economic Development
Calgary Economic Development's Mission
We advance opportunities for smart growth to achieve individual, business and community potential for the Calgary Region.
Calgary Economic Development's Mandate
Calgary Economic Development works with businesses, government and community partners to position Calgary as the location of choice for the purpose of attracting business investment, fostering trade and growing Calgary's workforce.
Calgary Economic Development is a corporation funded by the City of Calgary, private industry and other levels of government, and managed by an independent Board of Directors.
We are opportunity-makers, helping to spark and fuel the growth that has made Calgary an economic strength in Canada. Calgary Economic Development is a conduit, a connector and a catalyst to bring businesses, organizations, government and the community together for projects and initiatives that benefit Calgary’s vitality and economic well-being.
We are story tellers, charged with the happy responsibility of getting to know Calgary, and sending its good news beyond the city limits.
We are a wealth of information. It’s our business to figure out what makes Calgary work. And it’s our job to share facts and resources freely with anyone who wonders why or how or how much.
We're exhilarated about our role, and we're proud to be part of the energy.
