Calgary Dollars is a complementary currency system that is accepted by 1,000 participants including Calgary Transit, FFWD, Riva’s Eco Store, Sunnyside Market, Community Natural Foods and Mountain Equipment Coop. A community’s true wealth lies in the skills, talents and capabilities of its members, and we believe that every single person has something of value to offer to their neighbours.
Calgary Dollars complements federal dollars by supporting local resiliency and strengthening local business purchasing power. There is currently over $80,000 Calgary Dollars circulating in Calgary to buy and sell over 1000 goods and services. Calgary Dollars is also a development opportunity for businesses to engage in the ever-growing ‘green economy’, stimulate business growth, develop customer loyalty, and offer your network sustainably minded incentives and perks. From established store-front businesses, the City of Calgary, to social enterprise efforts and home-based businesses, Calgary Dollars offers a means for your business to complement your strategies to create more opportunities. Alberta’s Premier William Aberhart created Prosperity Certificates in 1936 to stimulate our province’s economy and the recent global economic downturn has resulted in NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg and the retired Japanese Finance Minister creating complementary currencies to serve their citizens in ways federal dollars are unable. Complementary currencies are a truly global economic movement.
