New Report Ranks Calgary #1 for Overall Economic Prosperity
A recent report released by Calgary Economic Development, in association with the Conference Board of Canada, entitled "Calgary: A Global Scorecard on Prosperity" ranks our city as number one for overall economic strength compared to 22 other major cities around the world.
The report credits our proximity to highly valuable natural resources, low unemployment rate, high percentage of disposable income, relative affordability of housing and average annual population growth, among numerous other indicators as reasons why Calgary has earned this title.
The partners and investors of Willow Creek couldn't agree more. We believe that Calgary is a great place to work and live and will remain an active and vibrant community, both socially and economically for many generations to come.
