Terry Wong

Ward 7 City Councillor, The City of Calgary

Terry Wong was sworn in as Ward 7 City Councillor on October 25, 2021.

Leading up to his election, Terry established and operated a municipal management consulting agency and led the establishment of Calgary’s ‘Chinatown Business Improvement Area,’ where he served as Board Vice-Chair, then Executive Director until 2021. Terry also served as President of the Hounsfield Heights Briar Hill Community Association (2018-2021) and as a community advocate, particularly in matters related to small business, land use planning and development.

Born and raised in Vancouver, B.C., Terry is a second-generation Chinese-Canadian to parents who operated local businesses and was entrenched in Vancouver’s Chinatown, which became his cultural roots and upbringing. Through recent years, Terry has been an opponent to ethnic and cultural racism; an advocate for multicultural respect through acts of community contribution; a proponent of a more equitable and just society through inclusion; and finally, a builder of strong communities through learning, not erased, history.
