Oil sands and drilling rigs, cattle and cowboys. A 10 day annual stampede. Is it any wonder that the "cowtown" moniker endures?
Amidst it all, Calgary has a thriving economy, is home to award winning employers and is attracting an increasing number of corporate head offices. So close to the Canadian Rocky Mountains that you can see them, Calgary boasts some of the best skiing in the world in nearby Banff, Jasper and Lake Louise.
