ITE Southern Alberta Luncheon: The Calgary Goods Movement Strategy
February 12, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$10 – $400
Calgary is well positioned as an inland port and is a goods-distribution hub for local, provincial, national, and international markets. Calgary’s Transportation Plan and the Municipal Development Plan recognize that the movement of goods is essential to Calgary’s wellbeing, growth and quality of life. Calgary’s goods movement industry supports approximately 134,000 jobs in the Calgary Region. It contributes up to $14.5 billion in our region’s Gross Domestic Product. To continue to support Calgary’s prosperity, and diversify economy, strengthen and attract new investments the City created a Goods Movement Strategy in 2018.
The Goods Movement Strategy is made up of six strategic directions with 26 action items, which are divided into short, medium, and long-term groups. The project team has done extensive research, data collection and engagement in developing the Strategy. The presentation will provide an overview of the project approach and the insights into how the strategy was developed.
