About Calgary

Calgary is the friendliest, most vibrant city in Western Canada?

Located in a scenic valley where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet, Calgary’s environmental outdoor playground is truly breathtaking. Within an hour's drive, residents can enjoy hiking, skiing and mountain biking in the majestic Rocky Mountains, Kananaskis Valley or Banff National Park.

As Canada's energy capital and Western Canada's business capital, Calgary is now home to the second-largest concentration of corporate offices in the nation. While Calgary's economy has been primarily shaped by the resource sector, its aggressive diversification efforts have resulted in the growth and development of the technology, tourism, manufacturing and service sectors. Due to its central location, Calgary has developed into a major distribution hub for goods and services throughout the Pacific Northwest region.

Calgarians are well known for their warm hospitality and western spirit. Although the city has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, Calgarians continue to cherish and protect the fundamental values that established their great city over one hundred years ago.
