The city of Calgary is located in the sunny foothills of southern Alberta. Less than an hours drive to the west lies the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, and to the east the great prairies stretch as far as the eyes can see.


The Stampede City has been named one of the cultural capitals of Canada and one of the best places to live in the world. Calgarians benefit from the strongest economy in the country, as well as the most days of sunshine per year of any major Canadian city.
