Calgarians feel they have a good quality of life.  Almost 4 in 5 (79%) agree that it is good, while 11% say “fair” and 10% say “poor”

We commissioned a study into how Calgarians feel about important issues. Six Hundred randomly selected residents were called, as were additional residents in the Black Cart Pilot Project area so as to have a bigger representation in the waste collection discussion. The results were weighted to be representative of gender and age according to the 2019 Census. Overall, the results can be considered accurate to within +/-4%, 95% of the time.
