Newsletter for May 2023

The Parliamentary session is over, and I am looking forward to another awesome summer in Northeast Calgary!

I am very excited to host my 6th Annual Community Cleanup tomorrow. If you haven’t yet registered, you can do so here:


I am also hosting a Stampede Breakfast on July 8 in the parking lot of the Baitun Nur Mosque. There will be great food, special guests, and a celebration of what Calgary is all about: diversity, inclusion, and Stampede Spirit!

I hope to see you at both events, and many more times this summer!

Emergency Preparedness Week

As Northeast Calgarians, we understand the devastating impacts of a natural disaster as well as anybody. Our Liberal Government has put together some helpful information, guides, and resources to help you be ready.

I encourage you to visit to learn more about the risks specific to our region, create an emergency plan. When emergencies strike, we must always be prepared.

Celebrating the Canada Dental Benefit

Last December, as the first step to help improve access to dental care, our Liberal Government launched the Canada Dental Benefit.

We are helping eligible families to cover dental care expenses for children under 12 years of age. As of now, the Canada Dental Benefit has helped more than 300,000 children get brighter smiles and healthier teeth.

Public Service Strike Update​

I want to say thank you to everyone who filled out last month’s survey about how the public service strike was affecting you.

I'm pleased that our Liberal Government was able to reach a deal. The deal was both fair to employees and reasonable for taxpayers. Our public service has resumed normal operations.

Thank you for reading my May 2023 update. As always, stay in touch, and until next month!

George Chahal, M.P.
