Calgary, Alberta

A lot of Calgary’s success is owed to the rapid growth caused by its status as the centre of Canada’s oil industry, once known as Cowtown for the world-famous Calgary Stampede, and its connection to Canada’s Wild West. But the city is also a sports town, and it’s home to the Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampede, which hosts rodeos and other events throughout the year. What are some of the highlights of living in Calgary? It’s home to food, fun, amazing people and culture – endless adventures await you.
