Calgary is a safe and healthy city – one of the safest and healthiest big cities in the world.
In worldwide quality of living survey done by Mercer Human Resources Consulting, Calgary was ranked as the cleanest city in the world (for health and sanitation) four times in six years (in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2007). In 2008 and 2011, the firm ranked Calgary among the top 25 cities in the world for personal safety and security.
In Alberta, health care is completely free – you don’t even pay a monthly premium – while in terms of public safety, the city makes a significant investment in Calgary’s security and protective services (police, fire, bylaw and emergency medical services).
Transportation is another important factor that contributes to the health, safety and well being of a population, and Calgary’s public transit and network of roads and pathways are world-class…and improving.
