Position Title: Events and Programming Reports To: Manager, Events and
Intern, Marketing Programming
Location: Calgary, AB Closing Date: April 12
Contract Term :
May 6 to
Calgary Municipal Land Corporation (CMLC) is a master planner, a developer, and a project manager. We
build parks and pathways as carefully and earnestly as we build relationships with developers,
community partners, residents and so many others. We are a sales and marketing force, a strategic land
planner and a passionate community-builder. We curate public art and neighbourhood programming.
We liaise, consult, cooperate and engage. We listen. We learn. We lead. We are placemakers.
CMLC was incorporated in 2007 as a wholly owned subsidiary of the City of Calgary to implement and
execute the Rivers District Community Revitalization Plan-a public infrastructure program approved by
the City of Calgary and the Province of Alberta to kick-start Calgary's urban renewal and unlock the
tremendous value of several hundreds of acres at the river's edge.
Since then, CMLC has invested over $396 million into the delivery of the East Village master plan, which
envisions a mixed-use, high-density urban community that will be home to 11,500 residents. To date,
CMLC has laid the foundation for East Village's future and attracted nearly $3 billion in planned, private
investment. New public spaces, roads, sidewalks, parks and community gardens have been completed,
and more than 4,000 residents have moved into the community over the past few years.
In 2018, CMLC completed the master plan for east Victoria Park, which imagines a 20-year vision for
Calgary's Culture & Entertainment District-a vibrant, high-density, mixed-use community that draws on
the spirit of entertainment that resides in its DNA, as well as its natural surroundings. The vision for east
Victoria Park will result in four million square feet of mixed-use development and more than 8,000 new
residents moving into the district.
Mission: Strengthening connections between people and the places they share, our passionate
approach to elevating the urban experience infuses communities with new energy and the confidence to
build, grow and believe.
Vision: CMLC is a community builder: we imagine the possibilities and seize the opportunities to
transform Calgary and the ways people experience it.
Mandate: CMLC, created and owned by the City of Calgary, exists to achieve the City's objectives for
urban densification and community renewal, infrastructure investment and placemaking.
