The 2013 Calgary municipal election was held Monday, October 21, 2013 to elect a mayor and 14 councillors to the city council, the seven trustees to the Calgary School District (each representing 2 of 14 wards), and five of the seven trustees to the Calgary Catholic School District (each representing 2 of 14 wards). Two incumbent separate school trustees had no challengers. From 1968 to 2013, provincial legislation has required every municipality to hold elections every three years.[1] The Legislative Assembly of Alberta passed a bill on December 5, 2012, amending the Local Authorities Election Act.[2] Starting with the 2013 elections, officials are elected for a four-year term, and municipal elections are moved to a four-year cycle.[3]

The 14 electoral wards will once again be represented by a single member on council, although the wards will change slightly from the current term. The neighbourhood of Martindale will move from ward 3 to ward 5, and the community that expanded the neighbourhood of Cougar Ridge into ward 1, will be with the rest of the neighbourhood in ward 6.[4] This election also marks a change of title for council members, from "Alderman", to "Councillor".
