Innovative Ways to make Nightlife Safer and More Vibrant

Calgary has instituted innovative nightlife programs

Through coordination with a diversity of stakeholders. Representatives from the City of Calgary, Calgary Police Service and the Calgary Downtown Association talk about how they collaborate on policy development and enforcement operations for the nighttime economy.

Engage Planners in Nightlife Policy:
  • Learn how policy and bylaw planners coordinate with stakeholders such as Business Licensing, Calgary Police Service, Alberta Liquor and Gaming, and Alberta Health Services to address systemic issues at the policy level.
  • Proactive Collaboration with Nightlife Businesses: Public safety agencies charged with enforcement and compliance collaboratively address issues with nightlife businesses before they escalate.
  • Maintain Cleanliness and Vibrancy of Public Spaces: Graffiti clean-up and strategic illumination of streets and sidewalks are critical to positive perceptions of safety. Find out how the Calgary Downtown Association partners with industry and government to enhance Calgary’s busiest nighttime district.
  • Enable Sustainable Collaboration: Effective and sustainable change takes time, resources and often a facilitator. Find out how the City’s six-year Clean to the Core initiative convenes stakeholders to partner in the Center City to support vibrant and safe nightlife activity.
