We’re proud of the work we’re doing to make this city better. We've made a lot of progress in the last year and we’re just getting started.
Take me straight to the details.
Show me what you did!
We’re creating jobs.
We helped attract, expand and retain 67 companies. This means 5,700 new jobs and $520 million to Calgary's GDP.
Why Calgary is the place to be.
Whoa, that’s big. What else have you been up to?
We’re helping companies start.
Last year, 2,000 people participated in Startup Calgary programming. Startups like Mikata Health were connected to funding and they successfully launched their exciting AI powered product within 6 months.
How’d they do it?
And we were noticed 150 million times.
Our Amazon campaign was mentioned by the New York Times, Financial Times, CNN, Business Week and garnered almost 150 million impressions on social media.
We learned some things!
We have $100 million for catalytic projects.
The Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund will help fuel our economy by supporting businesses or organizations with the potential to invest in Calgary and beyond.
That’s a huge investment.
Season 3 of Fargo (filmed here) won an Emmy and a Golden Globe award. In 2017, Calgary attracted $180 million in film, television and commercial production.
See why producers film here.
Is that all?
We’re getting skilled workers hired.
The conference PivotTECH helped over 1,000 attendees learn how they can reskill for the new digital economy. A few were even hired on the spot.

We’re bringing tech to YYC.
