This area comprises over 50 million square feet of office, hotel, retail, restaurant, entertainment, attractions, cultural and government buildings. Funding for CDA is primarily through a business tax levy collected by the City of Calgary from all members within the CDA geography. 


CDA exists to market downtown Calgary as a desirable place to live, work, shop and play while advocating for the needs of downtown business owners and operators. By fully embracing its priorities and with a clear focus on the future, CDA will continue to transform into a highly responsive and relevant organization, unified in its determination to increase its impact, influence and scope and to elevate the reputation of Calgary’s downtown area.
