Calgary continues to grow as a magnet for talent, a place where there is opportunity for all, and the best place in Canada to start and grow a business. According to the 2015 Citizen Satisfaction Survey, 80 per cent of Calgarians agree that Calgary is a great place to make a living.

The City is one of many organizations that can influence the quality of life in our community. To help Calgary be a prosperous city, The City focuses on economic growth, competitiveness and community well-being. The City will use indicators to help us understand whether or not we are moving in the right direction towards achieving each quality of life result (as The City works to define indicators and quality of life result areas, Council Priorities will be used to frame quality of life in Calgary).

There are many City of Calgary programs and services that contribute to Calgary as a prosperous city. Find information about some of these, including performance measures, below.
