About Calgary

Calgary is the largest city of Alberta, Canada, and is located in the southern part of the province.
The city is located on the western edge of the Great Plains, in the foothills of the spectacular Canadian Rockies, located approximately 60 miles (100 km) to the west. The surrounding valleys and uplands provide a stark contrast to the flat prairie landscapes that are characteristic of the Western Canada region.

Founded in 1875, Calgary serves as the administrative and financial headquarters of the Canada’s petroleum industry.
