Entry Restrictions Lifted for Calgary Municipal Building
Starting July 21, 2021, restricted access to the Calgary Municipal Building has been removed. All visitors and staff to the Municipal Building can now come and go freely at all public entrances.
Some COVID-19 protocols are still in effect to ensure everyone’s health and safety, including masks or facial coverings required inside all City-operated facilities and public transit.
Previously, two COVID-19 checkpoints provided controlled access to the Municipal Building, restricting entry to City employees with valid ID cards and citizens who needed access to City business services such as Fair Entry, planning services and property tax payments.
This restriction on public access was an extraordinary and required safety measure that began during the early days of the pandemic on March 23, 2020. Nearly 15 months later, visitors can now access the public gallery in City Council chambers during committee and Council meetings and view City exhibits found around the Municipal Building’s indoor atrium.
The Calgary Municipal Building is open to the public Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is located at 800 Macleod Trail S.E.
