City of Calgary
Calgary's reputation as Canada's Energy Capital stems from its thriving oil and gas industry and from the energy and enthusiasm of its business community.
With Canada's youngest and most highly educated population, it is easy to see why Calgary has such vitality and spirit. It is this combination of optimism and opportunity that continues to draw firms and entrepreneurs to this city.
Calgary is home to 89% of Canada's oil and natural gas producers and 64% of coal producers. Companies involved in the energy sector, and its supporting industries, have flocked to Calgary and have sparked the emergence of new growth leaders.
Aside from oil and gas companies, the city has internationally recognized firms involved in finance, engineering, food production, transportation, and telecommunications. As an established advanced technology centre, Calgary is also home to dynamic information technology, health services and environmental sciences firms.
A further attraction of Calgary is our enviable rocky mountain lifestyle. A recent study from Geneva, Switzerland, ranked Calgary as twelfth in the world for the highest quality of life.
With a strong entrepreneurial spirit and an ability to get things done, Calgary remains one of Canada's most consistently growing economies.
