Calgary will surprise you. Yes, there was a time people viewed the city as a honky-tonk backwoods stomping ground. But times have changed. Now, the city boasts more than 1.2 million residents, making it Alberta’s largest city and the 3rd-largest in Canada. Over the years it’s also become an economic powerhouse, offering excellent job options for both trade workers and C-suite executives, alike.

The city is recognized as a leader in the Canadian oil and gas industries, as well as a forerunner in the region’s economic expansion. Personal and family incomes are relatively high and typically there is lower unemployment although, in recent years, low resource prices have hurt the city’s economy. Still, the city doesn’t rely solely on oil and gas. It’s known as a financial services leader and small businesses and self-employment levels rank among the highest in Canada. By diversifying away from the oil and gas sector, Calgary’s labour force in other areas has grown. Professional, technical and management accounted for 14%, trade and construction account for almost 15% of the workforce.

The top three private sector employers in Calgary are Shaw Communications, Nova Chemicals and Telus. However, it should be pointed out that Calgary has the 2nd-highest concentration of head offices in Canada, behind Toronto.

While job prospects are good and housing is affordable, what really makes this city great is its proximity to the wilderness. Sitting at the gateway of the prairies, the city is only 80 kilometres from the foothills of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. This proximity to nature means city residents can have an exceptional live/work balance that’s ideal for just about everyone, particularly the outdoor enthusiast.

Despite a few hits to the economy, primarily due to resource prices, Calgary continues to thrive. Just ask the REALTORS® that serve this market. This makes it an ideal spot to set up house in the Canadian real estate market.

Neighbourhoods

The city of Calgary was first established using a grid system. Centre Street and the Bow River offer the geographical axis that split the city into four quadrants. This pragmatic city structure could leave you with the impression that the city is one monolithic housing market. It’s not. There are distinct communities. These communities offer colour and depth to what is now a vibrant and youthful city. Good news for buyers looking for a variety of homes for sale in this large western Canadian city.

Take, for instance, the communities of Beltline and Mission, which are located just south of the downtown core. There’s a great selection of new and older rentals, townhomes, Calgary condos and houses. But the biggest attraction is walkability. Beltline residents are minutes away from the city’s rapid transit light rail train, which runs through downtown. Both communities are a short walk from the popular 17th Avenue SW. This is the commercial strip that was famously dubbed the Red Mile after waves of Calgary Flames fans took to the streets to cheer on their hockey team. Those looking for older character homes could look in the artist-inspired Inglewood. You can also find older family homes in Bowness and Varsity, which are good neighbourhoods if you want close proximity to the University of Calgary.  

To help start your property search, check out our neighbourhood rankings. Using the latest data, all communities are ranked based on how quickly houses sell, the sale price and how many listings are currently available. Of course, nothing beats spending time in the ‘hood, so use the rankings to narrow down your choices before spending some quality time soaking up the local vibe and walking through a few Calgary open houses.

Nearby Cities

Many buyers opt to purchase in a nearby city and commute to work. These buyers want larger homes and lots but with good commuter access to Calgary’s downtown core. Good options include Acadia, Sunridge and Huntington Hills. Look for neighbourhoods that are closer to the highway or commuter train stations, such as Shawnessy or Royal Oak. Even cities that require a bit longer of a commute, such as Chestermere, Airdrie and Cochrane, are options as they offer more affordable detached homes.

Local Scoop

Once considered a one-trick pony, Calgary’s grown up quite a lot in the last few decades. The downtown core no longer shuts down at 5:15 pm and the mayor no longer has a few drinks at the local dive bar. These days there is a vibrant sport and outdoor culture. There’s also a thriving professional and grassroots artistic community and amid all this a combination of youthful energy and corporate focus.

This doesn’t mean Calgary has shed its iconic history. On any night of the week, you could rub shoulders with leather-clad fellows or business folk at the iconic 17th Avenue pub, The Ship. Celebrating almost three decades of open doors, The Ship’s patio is one spot where just about every city resident over the age of 18 will spend a sunny afternoon.

In July almost the entire city will don cowboy boots and Stetsons to celebrate Calgary Stampede. The event has roots that go back to 1886 and the entire city comes out to celebrate this long, rich rodeo history. There are community pancake breakfasts, beer festivals and events for young and old throughout the city.

Families will be interested in the National Music Centre, which is an interactive exhibit that lets kids try out a variety of instruments including the electric guitar, drums and a voice recording room. For a more historical experience, consider a day at the Heritage Park Historical Village. Costumed actors roam the village, recreating life in the city in the early 20th-century. A day of pure amusement can be found at Calaway Park, Western Canada’s largest outdoor family amusement park.
