Calgary is both business and pleasure. Honestly. Calgary boasts one of the youngest, best educated workforces in Canada, with seven post-secondary institutions. With the numerous live music venues, countless parties during the Calgary Stampede, or the exploding micro-brewery and culinary scene, and it’s clear that Calgarians know how to throw a dash of fun into even the busiest day.
