Black Lives Matter YYC suggests a redistribution of funds into services that foster stronger communities, like investing in more accessible transit, affordable childcare and housing, and education and job training opportunities for young people.

People's Budget YYC
The People's Budget YYC survey asks about your priority for how your tax dollars should be spent in the City of Calgary.

We teamed up with Local Laundry, a Calgary-owned, Canadian made clothing company who aims to build community and give back through their business, to mentor up to three ambitious business owners as they further developed their business plans and grow their online platforms.
