Great Cities Report – Profiles in municipal excellence
By: Calgary Chamber of Commerce
Grant Number: 2013-06

Calgary as a city continues to lead Canada in terms of population growth and, as its economy continues to grow, increasingly competes on a global scale for both business and talent. As Calgary becomes recognized as a global city, it needs to keep up with other Great Cities to attract successful businesses, elite-level talent, and provide critical infrastructure support for economic success.

With Calgary’s growth in mind, the Calgary Chamber launched the Great Cities initiative, which looks to understand the importance of  cities in the global economy, and the impact municipal decisions and actions have on the success of a community.

Alberta’s Real Estate Heritage
By: Heritage Community Foundation
Grant Number: 2008-26

The real estate industry in Alberta has played a vital role in shaping communities. Not only has it contributed to the province’s economic development, the history of the transactions it facilitates also chronicle the social, political, demographic, and architectural heritage of cities, towns and rural communities across the province. Collectively and individually, real estate professionals have made and continue to make significant contributions to the fabric of the province, and these deserve to be made known. Alberta’s Real Estate Heritage website is an educational multimedia website showcasing information about all aspects of the real estate industry – its history, people, and landmark buildings.
