Major Urban Centre, Calgary AB

By August 24, 2019 No Comments

Calgary sits in the sunny eastern foothills of Canada’s Rocky Mountains, where the Bow and Elbow rivers meet.

It is the major urban centre 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.

It is no surprise to Calgarians that their home has been ranked the 5th most liveable city in the world by The Economist Intelligence Unit from 2009-2017. In 2018, Calgary rose to become the 4th most liveable city in the world. Population density is low, quality of life is high and housing abundant.

The survey, administered by Leger, asked respondents what was most and least important to them in comparing a variety of aspects of communities including crime rate, parks, recreation facilities, community engagement, walkability and more. Using a max-differential analysis, Leger calculated the weighting of each characteristic and amenity. Then, using data we collected from a variety of third-party sources including the City of Calgary, the Calgary Police Service, Walk Score, and others, Leger ranked the city’s neighborhoods.
