We run a Calgary Discord server that anyone is welcome to join! On the server you’ll find various chatrooms/channels for traditional topics such as #gaming, #pets or #politics etc, but there’s #420 and #pride and #selfies and a whole bunch more. The server is populated with people mostly aged 20 – 40, of all genders, and most people currently reside in Calgary. There are a few snowbirds and expats that no longer live in Calgary but wish to stay connected, and this server is a great way to do that.
Discord comes in all the flavours! A mobile app, a desktop program, or you can even just use Discord through an internet browser.

Discord Tutorial Video
Using Discord isn’t hard, but it does have a slight learning curve. Here’s a video to help you get the hang of it, if you’re new to Discord.
This is meant to be a fun space for Calgarians to shoot the shit, so join up if you’re interested in discussing things with other locals. Maybe you’ll meet some new people? What’s the worst that could happen?
