If you wander amidst the glass-and-steel towers that dominate downtown Калгари, Альберта, you’ll likely see some familiar namesat least if you’re familiar with major international oil companies. Такие компании, как Shell, Это, ВР, Imperial Oil, and Petro-Canada all have a significant presence in Calgary, и energy-based businesses account for a considerable percentage of Calgary’s jobs.

Beyond the oil industry, Calgary has a developing high-technology sector, reporting the largest number of technology start-ups на душу населения в Канаде. Calgary’s construction and real estate industries are booming, and the region is a Western transportation hub. Калгари edge-of-the-prairies location means that agricultural businesses have long been based here, а его near-the-mountains setting has made it a starting point for Скалистые горы туризм.

Why settle in Calgary? A clerk in a downtown outdoor-gear store put it this way: С понедельника по пятницу, Калгари много работает. But by Friday afternoon, это время, чтобы играть.

And whether that play involves heading for the mountains to ski, snowboard, велосипед, или поход, or staying in the city to jog in the park or meet your pals for drinks, Калгари играет жестко. From hip eateries and sidewalk cafes to riverfront paths filled with skaters and cyclists, Calgary bristles with energyand it doesn’t all come out of the ground.
