Calgary Economic Development is a conduit, connector, catalyst and storyteller. We collaborate to advance opportunities in achieving economic success, embracing shared prosperity and building a strong community for Calgary.
As economic developers, we work on a variety of initiatives throughout the year. While many of these initiatives have immediate activities and outcomes, the actual impact on a business or the community is often seen years after initial engagement or interest in Calgary.
Calgary Economic Development’s job is to connect people with resources that can help them grow their careers or businesses, thrive in new locations or markets, and feel at home in our community.
