Calgary, located in the province of Alberta, is the largest city in both Alberta and the entire Prairie Provinces region. With a population of 1,306,784 in the city proper and a metropolitan population of 1,481,806 (as of 2021), Calgary ranks as the third-largest city and fifth-largest metropolitan area in Canada.

Situated at the confluence of the Bow River and the Elbow River in the southwestern part of the province, Calgary occupies a transitional area between the Rocky Mountain Foothills and the Canadian Prairies. It is approximately 80 km (50 mi) east of the front ranges of the Canadian Rockies, about 299 km (186 mi) south of the provincial capital Edmonton, and roughly 240 km (150 mi) north of the Canada–United States border. The city serves as the southern anchor of the Statistics Canada-defined urban area known as the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor.

Calgary’s economy thrives across various sectors, including energy, financial services, film and television, transportation and logistics, technology, manufacturing, aerospace, health and wellness, retail, and tourism. The Calgary Metropolitan Region boasts the second-largest number of corporate head offices among Canada’s 800 largest corporations. In 2015, Calgary had the highest number of millionaires per capita among major Canadian cities. In 2022, it was ranked as the third most livable city in the world, sharing the spot with Zürich, and claiming the top position in Canada and North America. Moreover, Calgary became the first Canadian city to host the Olympic Winter Games in 1988.

Calgary experiences a semi-monsoonal humid continental climate in its eastern parts and a subarctic climate in its western parts, primarily due to variations in elevation. The city enjoys warm and comfortable summers, while winters are freezing and dry, subject to significant variability. Calgary falls within the NRC Plant Hardiness Zone 4a. According to Environment Canada, average daily temperatures range from 16.5 °C (61.7 °F) in July to -7.1 °C (19.2 °F) in January.

Winters in Calgary are cold and dry, with temperatures dropping below -20 °C (-4 °F) on an average of 22 days per year and below -30 °C (-22 °F) on an average of 3.7 days per year. However, warm, dry chinook winds frequently blow into Alberta from the mountains, causing rapid temperature increases. These winds can raise winter temperatures by up to 20 °C (36 °F) and even 30 °C (54 °F) within a few hours, sometimes lasting for several days. Calgary’s proximity to the Rocky Mountains also influences winter temperatures, resulting in milder conditions compared to other cities in the Prairie Provinces. The wind chill factor, combined with an average wind speed of 14.2 km/h (8.8 mph), one of the highest among Canadian cities, further affects temperature perception.

During summer, daytime temperatures range from 10 to 25 °C (50 to 77 °F), with an average of 5.1 days exceeding 30 °C (86 °F) in June, July, and August. Occasionally, these hot days extend into September or commence in May. In winter, temperatures can drop below or reach -30 °C (-22 °F) for an average of 3.7 days per year. Thanks to Calgary’s high elevation and aridity, summer days are typically comfortable and non-humid, setting it apart from many other major Canadian cities. Summer evenings also cool off, with monthly average low temperatures below 10 °C (50 °F) throughout the summer months.

Calgary has established itself as a prominent player in Canada’s oil and gas industry, and its economy has experienced significant growth compared to the overall Canadian economy (43% and 25% respectively) between 1999 and 2009. The city benefits from high personal and family incomes, low unemployment rates, and a high GDP per capita, all of which have been bolstered by increased sales and prices resulting from a resource boom and economic diversification.

As part of the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor, one of the country’s fastest-growing regions, Calgary enjoys a robust job market in Alberta. It serves as the headquarters for numerous major oil and gas companies and has fostered the growth of financial service businesses around them. Small businesses and self-employment levels in Calgary rank among the highest in Canada. Additionally, the city functions as a distribution and transportation hub, contributing to its thriving retail sector.
