6 Reasons Calgary’s Job Market Is Booming

It is higher than when in 1912, the city grew around the first Calgary Stampede, or in the time after oil was found in Pembina Oil Field in 1956. Today's growth is even greater than the 20-years after the Winter Olympics of 1988 when the population of Calgary nearly doubled.
