Downtown Ambassador Program

by Calgary Downtown Association

About the Ambassador Program

Our new Ambassador Program will focus on outreach, safety, and cleanliness, providing a presence within the nine blocks surrounding the Calgary Municipal Building and Stephen Avenue.

Working as part of a team, the Ambassadors will:

  • Connect Calgarians and visitors to services, information, and supports
  • Build ties with local businesses, community organizations, and economically diverse citizens who may be spending time in the area
  • Be a resource to the vulnerable population by helping connect them with social services

Our team of 12 Ambassadors will be recognizable from their red jackets, and will provide coverage to the area during the following times:

Monday to Saturday from 9:00am to 8:00pm
Sundays from 10:00am to 4:00pm
