Calgary was a federal electoral district in Alberta, Canada that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1904 to 1917. It was located initially in the Northwest Territories. Following the creation of the province of Alberta in 1905, the riding was located in that province. (From 1905 to 1907, Calgary riding also included parts of Saskatchewan.)

This riding was created in 1903, and abolished in 1914 when it was redistributed between Calgary West, East Calgary and Macleod ridings.
