Hi!  My name is Cornelia Wiebe and - with your support - I am ready to be your next Ward 8 city councillor. 

I am the owner of a local business in Calgary's 17th Avenue district. It has been a gathering place for inner-city Calgarians for over 20 years and it has kept me connected to the pulse of this community.  As a business owner, I’ve spent the last two decades strengthening my business skills, making tough decisions, navigating risk, and finding success amid economic uncertainty. And now I want to bring this skill set to city hall.

But I also love this ward—and the people in it. I celebrate our diversity, how eclectic we are, and how united our community spirit can be.

After I completed my bachelor’s degree at the University of Winnipeg, I travelled globally before choosing Calgary as my home. I’m so proud to live, work, and play here. Like many of you, I’m raising a family in this ward, my two teenage children attend school in this ward, I’ve been part of many fundraising initiatives associated with this ward—and I’m so proud to be part of our community.

I believe our next ward 8 councillor should demonstrate a history of service to this ward. I’ve always been engaged in civic matters, supporting the Uptown 17th Avenue revitalization and rebrand, and as an active member within the Ward 8 small business community.

Learn more about my readiness to lead and my priorities. A vote for me is a vote for an inclusive, sustainable, and transparent future.
