Fluoride was removed from Calgary water in 2011. Currently Council is reviewing the possibility of returning fluoride to our public water.

Calgary City Council will hold a Public Hearing on water fluoridation at the Council Chambers Tuesday Oct 29, 2019.

***Time is SUBJECT TO CHANGE so please register for this event to receive updates, check the City of Calgary links below, or check this page often.***

Safe Water Calgary will attend the hearing to voice the health, environmental, ethical, and financial concerns that surround artificial water fluoridation.

Please join us as part of our group to speak up to 5 minutes each to voice your concerns, or simply attend to support our group. Calgary City Council needs to hear citizens who oppose this failing public health practice and see that many people care about this issue.

Safe Water Calgary is a broad coalition of concerned citizens who believe that all Calgarians should have access to clean and safe public water. We believe in our right to make individual choices as to what goes into our bodies and those of our children. We care about our health and that of the environment.

If you are planning to join us on October 29, please register. Once registered, we will contact you to confirm if you wish to simply attend as part of our group or be part of the speakers group. Tickets are not needed and are only used for registration.
