   Calgary is the 2nd largest city in Canada by area and is the heart of what Canadians call 'The New West'. While it is well known as the capital of Canada's oil industry, the past twenty years has seen a diversification of its economy into such areas as manufacturing and high-tech. As the economy has grown, so has its population. Calgary now has a population of over one million. Such rapid growth is spectacular, but Calgary has still been able to retain its livability and charm.



   Despite its size it is still possible to be out of the city within half an hour. Calgary has a provincial park within its city limits, and the city is riddled with parks, bike paths, and running areas. Given the accessibility of nature it is no wonder that Calgarians are addicted to the outdoors. Skiing, skating, biking, golfing, running and horseback riding are just some of the popular pursuits in this out-doors oriented city.
