Administrative history

Civic Trust was formed in 1998 when a diverse group of Calgarians joined together to promote good urban design and planning with a particular concern for architecture and heritage. One aim has been to find ways to incorporate historical places and building into the fabric of a fast-growing city that take advantage of private ownership, interest and enthusiasm. Another is to support knowledge and enthusiasm for exceptional urban design and innovative architecture among all citizens. These and its other objectives are pursued through cooperation with many other bodies and individuals - civic, provincial, national and international.
