A cosmopolitan city that grew out of the Canadian West, Calgary is a sophisticated blend of modern lifestyles with a touch of pioneer charm and has been consecutively ranked among the top 5 Most Livable Cities in the World by The Economist Intelligence Unit since 2009. The metropolis encompasses numerous skyscrapers, world-class shopping, a diverse culinary landscape and active nightlife. Alongside the bustling ambiance, the “Cowtown” is steeped in western culture, as evident in their Calgary Stampede, the area’s annual rodeo and festival that stemmed from its cattle-ranching history. Surrounding the urban center are lush national forests and the commanding Rocky Mountains, all within a few hours drive. Low taxes, low crime rate, and high salaries make Calgary a smart setting for property investment.
