Calgary is a place where anything is possible – a place of big skies and big dreams, where the next big idea is on the horizon. It’s a city that exhilarates, invigorates and motivates with leaders who embody those attributes and embrace our will-do attitude. Calgary is recognized globally as one of the best places to live and do business in the world. We welcome the technological innovations transforming society and seek to resolve some of the world’s biggest challenges in areas like energy, logistics, food and health.
Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund
In 2018, the City of Calgary launched a powerful tool to attract and support transformative investments in the city. The $100-million Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund (OCIF) offers support for private sector companies, non-profits and public institutions who are making investments in Calgary that will be catalysts for economic growth and diversification, increased employment, and expansion of ecosystems in key economic sectors.
The Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund is seeking volunteer Board Directors to set the mission, approve strategies and objectives, ensure compliance with fiduciary and legal requirements, make decisions on applications that pass the rigorous screening process, and maximize the value of work done by OCIF.
