More on Calgary: Calgary is the largest
city in the province of Alberta, Canada. It is
located in the south of the province, in a region of
foothills and high plains, approximately 80
kilometres east of the front ranges of the Canadian
Rockies. Calgary is the third largest civic
municipality, by population, in Canada. As of the
2007 civic census, Calgary's population was
1,019,942. The metropolitan population (CMA for
Calgary Metropolitan Area) was 1,079,310 in 2006,
making Greater Calgary the fifth largest Census
Metropolitan Area in the country. Because it is
located 300 kilometres due south of Edmonton,
statisticians define the narrow populated region
between these cities as the "Calgary-Edmonton
Corridor". It is the largest Canadian metropolitan
area between Toronto and Vancouver.
A resident of Calgary is known as a Calgarian.
Calgary is well-known as a destination for winter
sports and ecotourism with a number of major
mountain resorts near the city and metropolitan
area. Economic activity in Calgary is mostly centred
on the petroleum industry; however, agriculture,
tourism, and high-tech industries also contribute to
the city's fast economic growth. Calgary holds many
major annual festivals which include the Calgary
Stampede, the Folk Music Festival, the Lilac
Festival, Wordfest: Banff-Calgary International
Writers Festival, One World Festival (GlobalFest),
and the second largest Caribbean festival in the
country (Carifest). In 1988, Calgary became the
first Canadian city to host the Olympic Winter
Games, and one of the fastest ice skating rinks in
the world was built to accommodate these games.
Despite the importance of the oil industry to its
economic success, Calgary was ranked the World's
Cleanest City by Mercer Quality of Living in a
survey published in 2007 by Forbes Magazine.
