CMLC reports to the City twice a year through our AGM and annual Business Plan and Shareholder meeting. In partnership in the delivery of major city-building projects, CMLC is currently collaborating with the City and our project partners in the delivery and oversight of the Arts Commons Transformation (ACT), Olympic Plaza Transformation (OPT), BMO Centre expansion and other major projects underway.
We build communities by building relationships. We liaise, consult, cooperate and engage.
We foster relationships with the country’s largest commercial landlord, smallest arts collective and everyone in between. Our unique working relationships allow us to pursue complex, often challenging projects and see them through to completion as envisioned. And as promised.
We learned that when our partners succeed, so do we.
CMLC works hand-in-hand with the numerous Business Improvement Areas, Community Associations and Neighbourhood Associations in our communities to ensure residents and retailers are engaged in the redevelopment of the Rivers District. These groups include East Village Neighbourhood Association (EVNA), Vic Park BIA, Beltline BIA, Beltline Neighbourhood Association (BNA) and 17th Ave BIA.
The Calgary Stampede is a not-for-profit community organization that preserves and celebrates Calgary’s western heritage, cultures and community spirit. Since 1912, the Calgary Stampede has hosted its annual 10-day festival, which attracts more than 1.2 million guests from every corner of the world every year.
The land at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers has been a place of Indigenous significance for thousands of years. In 1875, it became a site of colonization with the occupation of the NWMP and increasing settler presence, eventually leading to the creation of our city. Fort Calgary is committed to honouring and sharing the diverse, complex history of Calgary’s origin story.
Since 1985, Arts Commons has been a key contributor to social, cultural and intellectual life in Calgary. Canada’s third largest arts centre, it’s currently home to six resident companies and used annually by 200+ community groups. Through ACT and OPT, this vital cultural institution will be a major catalyst to downtown Calgary’s revitalization and the city’s exciting evolution.
CMLC and Calgary Transit have been working hand in hand since 2021 in the delivery of the 17th Avenue SE Extension & Victoria Park/Stampede Station Rebuild. The $103M two-part project, managed and funded by CMLC, is opening up and modernizing Stampede Park’s western edge, giving Calgarians a new connection between Stampede Park and the neighbourhoods to the west plus a much more accessible LRT station.
