Each year, the Calgary Parking Authority runs an Accessible Parking Awareness Campaign to help educate Calgarians on the importance of leaving designated stalls for those with disabilities.
The campaign starts on Accessible Parking Awareness Day (usually the last Thursday in November) and runs through the month of December. Particularly during the holiday season, accessible spaces are a necessity - not a privilege for those with disabilities. Please be courteous and leave accessible spaces for those who truly need them.
There's a spot for everyone in Calgary.
