Calgary Lifestyle location advantages

Imagine being an hour's drive away from the spectacular Rocky Mountains. For Calgarians, this is a reality, along with easy access to Banff, Canmore and Jasper. Calgary is also a three-hour drive from the Coutts/Sweetgrass United States border crossing, the third-busiest border crossing in the western states and provinces.
Within the city limits, Calgary Transit has been moving Calgarians since 1909 - over 100 years of service. Today's transit fleet is made up of 225 regular buses, 575 low floor buses, 63 articulated buses, 102 community shuttle buses, and 160 light rail vehicles. Calgary's transit service has been responsible for many aspects of Calgary's growth and development.

Calgary Climate & weather


The Calgary area enjoys a mild and ever-changing climate. During the summer months the temperatures can vary dramatically, with temperatures soaring into the 30s and dropping far below that during the night. Calgary has the sunniest winter months with an average of 2,300 hours of sunshine annually.
Because of its close proximity to the mountains the region has become famous for its Chinooks; a warm, dry wind, most noticeable in the winter, that causes the temperature to rise above freezing.
Calgary is ranked first out of Canada's 100 largest cities by Environment Canada for the sunniest days year-round and in the winter.
