Why Calgary?

Calgary is just an hour’s drive from the beautiful Canadian Rockies! Hiking, skiing, rafting, and camping opportunities abound. The internationally renowned resort towns of Banff, with its hot springs and cosmopolitan shopping and dining areas, and Lake Louise, with its postcard views, are a short drive away. Calgary is a growing and diversified city and for the fifth year in a row, the Economist Intelligence Unit listed Calgary as tied for fifth-best place to live in the world. Calgary has also been named the cleanest city on Earth in 2013, 2014, and 2015 by Mercer Global Financial and HR Consulting.
