Calgary Places as the Number Two City in the World Prosperity Ranking

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

Prosperous Calgary Picture

According to the  Toronto Region Board of Trade’s 2014 Scorecard on Prosperity, Calgary ranked in as the 2nd most prosperous city in the world. Calgary ranked behind only Paris, France in terms of prosperity.

Calgary’s robust income, coupled with a very strong employment grate and growth are the main factors behind the top two ranking. Other major reasons for Calgary’s strong ranking are our relatively low housing affordability, a growing young labor force and moderately low commute times.

The other Canadian cities that made the list are Toronto, ranked at 3rd place, Vancouver and Montreal at 11 & 12, and Halifax ranking in as the world’s 16th most prosperous city.

For a full report on the 2014 Prosperity Scorecard and where the rest of the worlds major cities ranked please click here: 2014 Prosperity Scorecard

We were ecstatic to learn about Calgary’s top 2 prosperity ranking. Calgary’s real estate market has been a direct beneficiary of our cities strong, growing and prosperous economy. As mentioned earlier in this article, despite the booming economy and growing housing prices, Calgary is still one of the leaders in Canadian home affordability. We look excitingly look forward to seeing what other accolades our wonderful city will achieve in 2014.
