Canada's most livable city*
Place is not just the environment we live in, but also our overall quality of life. Creating conditions that enhance livability will support how well we attract new talent and businesses. Calgary has put a focus on creating a premier living environment; safe communities, being a global centre for business, arts, culture and recreation, and being a city that welcomes people. A city that offers these elements will be a city that attracts talent, fosters innovation and is a leader in economic growth. By becoming Canada’s most livable city, we offer people a better quality of life.
