City of Calgary’s Good Neighbour Guide

Good Neighbour Practices

Be the best neighbour you can be by knowing your and your neighbour’s rights and responsibilities.

If you are looking for more information about your responsibilities in your neighbourhood, the Good Neighbour Practices Reference Guide will get you started. The City of Calgary Good Neighbour Guide is an overview of city bylaws relating to neighbourhood issues.

Included in this document are frequently referenced bylaws which set a minimum standard for neighbourhoods and help ensure that all Calgarians live in safe, clean and healthy communities. It will help you to know your rights and responsibilities as members of your community, and includes general information about bylaws that affect your property.

The booklet provides general information about things like Trees and shrubs, Snow and ice, Untidy properties, Noise, Household waste, recycling and composting, Garage sales and more.
