Calgary West Rotary's areas of focus help our club direct its efforts to improve lives in our community and communities around the world and end polio forever.


Youth Programs

Rotary believes in developing the next generation of leaders.
Our programs help younger leaders build leadership skills,
expand education and learn the value of service.

Local Community

We carry out service projects that support improving lives in our community.


International Community

Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships,
improve lives, and create a better world to support these efforts.

Ending polio forever

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for over 35 years, and our goal of ridding the earth of this disease is in sight. We started in 1979 with vaccinations for 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, Afghanistan and Pakistan are the only countries where polio remains endemic.

Help us in the final push.
