Welcome to Calgary!
Our slogan is “Be part of the Energy”. This is a great slogan because it plays on the city’s large oil and gas industry, but means so much more.
Calgary is a young, vibrant city with an entrepreneurial and energetic spirit.
It’s a city that rests at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains as it flows alongside the Bow and Elbow Rivers with lots of natural beauty.
The population of this southern Alberta city is over 1.2 million. The communities are as vast and different as the people who live here.
While browsing the site, you will find information and photos of each community in the city, be it in the South East, South West, North East or North West.
You will have, at your fingertips, a short history of each community, its general location and ease of travel to major destinations such as Downtown, Banff or the Airport.
This is a city with major sports teams such as the beloved Calgary Flames, an NHL Hockey team and the Calgary Stampeders, a CFL football team.
The Flames, won the stanley cup in 1988-89. Their presence in the 2004 stanley cup finals created what is now called the Red Mile.
We are also the proud home of the Calgary Hitmen and the Calgary Roughnecks.
This city has many attractions and exciting things to do. These include the zoo, the second largest in Canada.
Heritage Park, an historical park, the largest of it's kind in Canada. As well as many others.
The city is rich in diversity, and it shows based on the number of great restaurants we have.
If you're hungry for good food and great atmosphere explore one of the many places to eat Calgary offers.
The shopping is amazing from the bigger malls such as Chinook, and Market Mall, to name a couple, to the more unique shopping experiences enjoyed in areas such as Kensington, Inglewood and along International Avenue (17th Avenue) in Forest Lawn.
When you mention Calgary to anyone in the world, one of the first thing that comes to mind is the Stampede, known as “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”. It is the largest and most well-known outdoor show held every year in July.
Without a doubt, this 10 day “party” where people, groups and companies dress the part of a Western Community complete with cowboy hats and boots is an amazing part of the community spirit of this city.
The bike path system, roughly 700km, one of the most extensive in North America, offers outdoor lovers breathtaking mountain and downtown views!
Dog lovers will enjoy the largest number of off leash parks in North America!
This is a welcoming city with western hospitality, where else can you see a lion, visit an Olympic park or see the majestic Rockies all in the same day!
