Abstract

The City of Calgary was only founded in 1884 but already had a population of more than 1 million in 2006. Due to rising oil prices and huge sand oil deposits in northern Alberta the economy is booming and more and more people are moving to Calgary. Even though energy is still the most important sector, the city succeeded in diversifying the economic base by supporting research and other incentives for the creation of a knowledge based industry. However, there are already some negative consequences of the economic boom like rising house prices, very high wages and labour shortage. - (IfL)
