We want to provide you with information on the following updates from industry partners:

  • City of Calgary – Planning and Development Service update

  • Municipality Updates – March 20

City of Calgary – Planning and Development Service update

All service lines within Planning and Development – City Planning & Policy, Development Approvals, and Building Safety – remain open for business with services still operating.  However, the City workforce has been significantly impacted, like most of their colleagues and customers across Calgary, and they appreciate  patience as they adjust to these unique circumstances. Business continuity is a high priority, and day-to-day business continues, albeit not necessarily in the usual ways all are accustomed to. The City is exploring different ways to work with industry, while at more physical distance.  As of today, the 3rd floor business counter is physically open and accepting submissions.  Details on this and other changes here.
