About Calgary

Calgary is a diverse and prosperous city in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet. Fresh air, open spaces, parks and pathways, and mountains and rivers frame this beautiful place. 

With more days of sunshine than any other major Canadian city and less than an hour’s drive from the majestic Rockies, it’s easy to see why Calgarians enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle.

But Calgary is much more than its geography. It is a place where, for generations, people have chosen to follow their dreams, build new lives, and find their place in the world.
