Location

Calgary, situated in the southern part of Alberta, uniquely positions itself as a juncture between the majestic Canadian Rockies and the expansive Canadian Prairies. This location grants it a varied landscape, with the city itself nestled at the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River. Calgary’s geographical setting is not just scenic but strategic, placing it approximately 80 km east of the Canadian Rockies, about 299 km south of Edmonton, and roughly 240 km north of the Canada–United States border. This positioning has historically made Calgary a key player in both provincial and national transportation and economic activities

Economy

Calgary’s economy is diverse and dynamic, featuring a blend of traditional sectors and emerging industries. The city’s economic backbone has long been the energy sector, with significant activities in oil and gas. However, Calgary has successfully diversified its economic base over the years. Now, the economy encompasses financial services, film and television, transportation and logistics, technology, manufacturing, aerospace, health and wellness, retail, and tourism sectors 1. This economic diversification is further underlined by the Calgary Metropolitan Region being home to the second-largest number of corporate head offices in Canada, indicating a strong corporate presence in the city.

Communities

Calgary is composed of over 306 distinct neighborhoods, each contributing to the city’s vibrant community life and cultural diversity. These neighborhoods range from inner-city communities with dense urban fabrics to suburban areas characterized by more spacious residential settings. Notable communities include Crescent Heights, Hounsfield Heights/Briar Hill, Bridgeland, Inglewood, and the suburban areas of Evergreen, Somerset, Auburn Bay, and McKenzie Towne 1. This diversity in communities not only reflects Calgary’s spatial growth but also its social and cultural dynamism, making it a city of varied experiences and opportunities.
