Emerald Management and Realty Ltd.'s Blog

Founded in 1972, Emerald Management and Realty Ltd. has offered services in the greater Calgary real estate market for more than 35 years.

A recently released poll by Angus Reid Public Opinion reveals that the majority of Calgarians regard The Stampede City as one of the most livable and employment-friendly of Canada’s largest cities. Residents of Canada’s three other major metropolises (Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver) responded more critically when asked to assess their municipal governments and to describe the overall quality of life in their cities. A city of 1.1 million people, Calgary has scored highly in other quality-of-life surveys as well, especially during the last decade.

This latest report shows that 90 percent of Calgarians consider their city “on the rise,” 89 percent believe it to be a livable place, 88 percent agree that it offers good job prospects, and 75 percent concur that it provides a good environment for starting a business. Furthermore, 62 percent of Calgarians stated that the current municipal government does a very good or good job, compared with 42 percent of Vancouver residents, 28 percent of Toronto residents, and 21 percent of Montrealers. While residents of the four cities gave high marks overall to their respective municipalities, Calgary received higher ratings than all other cities. For example, 87 percent of Calgarians said they were satisfied with their city’s quality of life, while 75 percent of Montrealers provided similar answers regarding their city.
