09. The Calgary Economy

Calgary has a vibrant economy that is an engine for prosperity in our country. In Alberta, urban areas accounted for the majority of all new jobs created between 1989 and 2014. A 2013 study by The City of Calgary estimated that, between 1991 and 2013, the net financial contribution by Albertans, including Calgarians, to the Federal Government grew from $870 million to $11.6 billion.
