Hi Everyone,

October is DEAM month! I will be putting all of the Disability Employment Awareness Month  events in the Events listing, but make sure to check out http://www.calgaryemploymentfirst.ca/disability-employment-awareness-month/ so that you can get the full picture of the events going on to support DEAM.

If you want to vote early in the municipal election, but you don’t know where to go, check out https://thecityofcalgary.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=0b1588b5b9d4478d8d86388df452ad26 . You just need to put your home address in, and it will give you a number of locations where you can vote at your convenience, and beat the Election Day rush.
