It is nestled between the Canadian Rockies and prairies and is a very picturesque city. It was a quiet and sedate area until 1902 when the oil boom hit Alberta. By 1947 the population swelled to over 200,000 people that were working in the oil fields and settled down to start families. The census of 2008 showed the population has grown to well over 1,250,000.
Calgary has maintained a robust economy since the Arab oil crisis of 1973. The long list of high powered banking institutions include Scotia Bank, Bank of Montreal, Royal Bank of Canada, CIBC, HSBC and TD Bank and many more.
