The Benefits of moving to Calgary Canada 2023

Calgary is one of the most well-known cities in Canada, thanks to the Calgary Stampede and the city's importance in the energy industry. Calgary, a populous city of more than 1.6 million people, has a lot to offer as a place to live.

Moving to Calgary has numerous advantages over other Canadian cities. After all, the Economist has named it the world's fifth most livable city for seven years in a row, with high marks for stability, healthcare, and education.

If you want to move to Calgary, here are just a few of the many reasons why the thriving city of "Cowtown" is such a great place to live.

Calgary is the cleanest city in the world

Beginning in 2007, Forbes magazine ranked Calgary as the cleanest city in the world. And, as of 2022, the World Atlas still claims that it is the cleanest city in the world. Calgary also topped the Mercer Global Financial list for the same honour in 2014. The city has clean sewage systems, good water quality and availability, and low air pollution.

Reduced Sales Tax

One advantage of living in Alberta is that there is no provincial sales tax. If you relocate to Calgary, you will only have to pay the 5% federal Goods and Services Tax. In comparison, residents of Ontario, Quebec, or the Atlantic provinces pay a combined 15 percent provincial and federal sales tax. This means you spend less money on things like groceries, clothing, and entertainment.

Spend Less Time in Inclement Weather

The Plus 15 Skywalk, named after the fact that it is mostly 15 feet above the ground, is a large covered skywalk system for pedestrians in Calgary. It is the world's largest collection of footbridges linked to buildings, stretching for 16 kilometres. You can walk to various downtown buildings and stores without leaving the Plus 15. Because it is heated, you can walk around in it in shorts and a T-shirt in the winter.

Public transportation is reasonably reliable, environmentally friendly, and reasonably priced

Calgary's public transit system is said to be "reasonably good". There is a network of trains and buses that will take you downtown in the mornings and back in the evenings. In keeping with the city's emphasis on cleanliness, Calgary's light railway, known as the C-Train, is powered by wind farms. It is North America's first wind-powered public transportation system. Carbon dioxide emissions were reduced by more than 56,000 tonnes in 2012 as a result of this initiative.

Finding Family Doctors is now easier than ever

During the boom years, there were not enough family doctors to serve Calgary's growing population. That has shifted. Calgary now has 141 physicians for every 100,000 residents. 115 is the national average. 373 of Calgary's 1,400 family doctors were accepting new patients in August 2016. This was an increase of more than 60% over the previous year.

Lots of Activities for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Calgary's location in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. Whatever activities you enjoy, Calgary has them all. For starters, Canada Olympic Park is located in the city and is used by both professional athletes and the general public. In the winter, you can use an innertube to slide down a hill there.

Calgary is reasonably close to other major cities

Other places to visit are easily accessible from Calgary. Going north, Edmonton is only a three-hour drive away. For starters, the West Edmonton Mall has excellent shopping and a water park. There are also numerous museums and galleries to visit in the city.

Festivals and Activities of International Standing

Calgary has a thriving arts scene, with everything from premier art galleries and museums to world-class festivals and events. When you live in Calgary, there is never a shortage of things to do. In Calgary, every season is festival season! Calgary International Film Festival, High Performance Rodeo, Calgary Folk Music Festival, and other events are held in the arts scene. If you prefer something more hands-on, Beakerhead combines art, science, and engineering.


Whatever kind of mood you're in, Calgary has a scene for you. There is certainly no shortage of dancing, music, or bars in any genre. The massive Cowboys dance hall is "the most fun you can have with your boots on," while the Blues Can offers live music seven days a week.
