An Accessible City

"How might we make Calgary the most accessible city in the world?"

Note: This challenge is now closed to new ideas at this time.

In 2015, Council adopted a notice of motion stating that the City has an obligation to build and promote a city that is accessible to persons of all ages, abilities and incomes.

Challenge Champions: Katie Black (Director, Calgary Neighborhoods), Councillor Druh Farrell & The City of Calgary's Advisory Committee on Accessibility.
