Update, July 4, 2013:

On the afternoon of July 4, 2013, the city of Calgary lifted the local state of emergency. For up to date information please visit the City of Calgary News Blog.


On June 20, 2013, heavy rainfall and meltwater combined causing the Bow and Elbow rivers to overflow resulting in floods in Canmore, Kananaskis, High River, Calgary and surrounding Alberta communities.

Our thoughts and best wishes go first and foremost to the people of the communities gravely affected by the events throughout the region. Calgary is recovering thanks to the tireless efforts of our first responders, our volunteers and the contributions of our whole community. In a time of crisis, Calgary is showing its true colors by pulling together for those in need.
