The Municipal District of Foothills No. 31 is a municipal district in southern Alberta, Canada adjacent to the south side of Calgary in Census Division No. 6. Despite sharing a common border with the City of Calgary of more than 15 kilometers and enveloping an agglomerate population of more than 60,000 people it has never been considered a part of the Calgary Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) by Statistics Canada. However, with membership in a regional metropolitan economic association, this Municipal District and its enclosed towns are generally accepted as constituent population, social and economic components of the Greater Calgary area.
