LGBTQ+ COMMUNITY INITIATIVES
The Calgary Sports and Entertainment Corporation (CSEC) and the Calgary Flames Foundation are proud to introduce the creation of the CSEC Inclusion Program. This program is comprised of a $2 million investment in sport inclusion through the Calgary Flames Foundation, along with the establishment of organizational and community partnerships and programs that promote inclusion.
The following are programs, partnerships and events to support the LGBTQ+. Please note, these are introductory partnerships as the launch of the program.
