CITY GUIDE
CALGARY, ALBERTA

Calgary is the largest city in the province of Alberta with a population of around 1,230,000 citizens.

It occupies a total of roughly 5,100 square kilometers of land and is located in the southern area of Alberta.

As a city that has hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1988 and proven itself to be the country’s leader in economic growth, it is becoming an increasingly eye-catching city for those who seek to live in a large metropolitan city outside of Ontario.

Northwest Calgary consists of neighbourhoods that are mostly residential in nature, with the structures being built as early as the 1950s.

This area has the largest proportion of condominiums and apartments, with around 40% of the semi-attached and detached homes being used for renting to prospective tenants.

The rest of the homes are mostly larger mansions and bungalows that have a 7-figure valuation price tag.

Given the amenities available within these homes and their close proximity to nearby essentials within the city, the real estate market here is very competitive amongst high net worth individuals and families.

Certain districts have a much higher number of semi-attached townhomes, but these tend to be within the more suburban neighbourhoods.

Calgary’s southeastern quadrant contains some of the newest homes that the city has to offer. Most of the homes that are available include mansions, bungalows, and many other detached homes that occupy large lots. It is not uncommon for owners to install pools, giant playgrounds, and the occasional tennis court in their backyards with the space that is available to them.

Economic Overview & Outlook

Calgary is one of the fastest growing cities in the country with respect to its economy. This can be attributed to several factors. The job market continually sees yearly growth in several industries including finance, gas and oil. With an extremely high concentration of entrepreneurs and small businesses, record-low unemployment, high averages for household incomes, and a sky-high GDP per capita, it is not hard to see why Calgary has achieved the economic success that it has today.

Even though oil and gas play a large part in contributing to the city’s GDP, they have decreased in their level of importance over the past decade. Conversely, the retail sales, business, health, and transportation sectors have seen an increase with respect to the role they play in improving Calgary’s economy. This is due to the fact that employment in these areas has sharply risen in recent times.
