L-R: Premier Notley, Dr. Francois Belanger, Will Morlidge with daughter Virginia, Minister Jansen and Minister Hoffman break ground on the Calgary Cancer Centre.

Rachel Notley, Premier has said that “Our government continues to make good on its promise to make life better for Albertans by investing in much-needed infrastructure projects like the new Calgary Cancer Centre. I’m proud to see this project begin construction, which will add jobs, boost the local economy and give hope to patients and families in Calgary and southern Alberta.”

When it opens in 2023, the Calgary Cancer Centre will offer comprehensive care, cancer research and education in a single state-of-the-art facility.
PCL Construction Management Inc. was selected to design and build the Calgary Cancer Centre, which will be located on the Foothills Medical Centre site with an elevated walkway connecting the new facility with existing buildings.

Due to construction, the west lane and sidewalk on 29 Street will be closed, with pedestrian traffic diverted to the east side of the street. Excavation, shoring and piling activity will begin in November and run to spring 2018.
