News Release: Monique Auffrey releases expanded Ward 8 campaign platform

Calgary, AB (Sept. 28 2021) - An award-winning CEO, Monique Auffrey is resolute in her personal mission of improving the livelihoods and communities of those with whom she works and where she lives. It is this dedication that has her proudly running for Ward 8 Councillor in the upcoming Municipal Election on Oct. 18, 2021, in Calgary.

Passionate about creating positive change, Auffrey has the drive, compassion and extensive experience in the social sector in Calgary and across Canada to not only establish impactful improvements to the community where she lives but to be seen as a trusted advisor for the residents in Ward 8. Notably, she is experienced in running a zero-balance budget and maintaining fiscal sustainability while continuing to implement impactful change.

“Calgary is my home and I care deeply for its people and businesses. Under my leadership, I envision a socially and financially vibrant city with an innovative and diversified funding model,” says Monique Auffrey, Ward 8 Councillor Candidate. “I want to help build a city where we live free from the fear of violence and provide equal opportunity for all.”

Since moving to Calgary 10 years ago, she has made it her mission to serve, first on the Propellus board and as a volunteer in fund development with Two Wheel View. She then took a pivotal role at Discovery House, as CEO. During her over five years there, the organization became recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 Charities and as one of Canada’s Top Women’s Shelters by Charity Intelligence and MacLean’s Magazine. She followed Discovery House with her role as CEO at Carya, (formerly Calgary Family Services) before deciding to run for the Ward 8 city council seat.

If elected, Auffrey aims to create change through the modernization and diversification of Calgary’s business model, spearhead pandemic recovery efforts for businesses, reassess and improve Calgary’s existing affordable housing model, and improve the results and outcomes tracking for social organizations. See Auffrey’s full platform here:
