Moving to Calgary
Calgary sits in the sunny eastern foothills of Canada’s Rocky Mountains, where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet. It is the major urban center, for the entire southern half of the province of Alberta, and is surrounded by an area of profound beauty with an unspoiled, resource-rich natural environment.
Calgary is a mountain-high city, and the climate – directly related to the altitude – is dry. Temperatures are mild, especially when compared to most of Canada, and even when it’s cold, it’s usually sunny. In fact, the sun shines an average of 2,300 hours every year, making Calgary the sunniest major city in the country.But Calgary weather is definitely unpredictable.
