Which one is better to live in – Calgary or Edmonton? Why?

Do you feel like a big city slicker or a small town girl? Edmonton or Calgary – which one is better to live in? Both cities have their pros and cons, but when it comes down to it, we think Calgary takes the cake. Read on to find out why!

Calgary and Edmonton are the 2 biggest cities in Alberta, Canada. The question is which one is better to live in, Calgary or Edmonton? Why?


It is difficult to say which city is better to live in, as it ultimately depends on an individual’s personal preferences and priorities. Both Calgary and Edmonton have their own unique features and attractions, and which city is better for you will depend on what you are looking for in a place to live.

Here are some factors to consider when deciding between Calgary and Edmonton:

  • Location: Calgary is located in southern Alberta, near the Rocky Mountains, while Edmonton is located in central Alberta. This can be a factor to consider if you enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing, or if you prefer a more urban environment.

  • Cost of living: Both Calgary and Edmonton have a relatively low cost of living compared to other major cities in Canada. However, Calgary tends to be more expensive than Edmonton, particularly in terms of housing costs.

  • Employment: Both cities have strong economies and a diverse range of industries, including oil and gas, healthcare, and technology. Unemployment rates in both cities are generally low.

  • Climate: Calgary and Edmonton both have cold winters and warm summers, with Calgary generally experiencing cooler temperatures and more snowfall.

Ultimately, the decision of which city is better to live in will depend on your personal circumstances and what you are looking for in a place to call home. It may be helpful to research and compare the two cities in more detail to determine which one is a better fit for you.

  • Is this legal?
    by /u/andrewshade98 (Calgary: Onward) on April 19, 2024 at 4:43 am

    I parked on the street, and a few hours later my neighbour placed his bins very close to my car. Previously, he had a traffic cone place in this spot; we recently had street sweeping done and I assume he, or the city removed it. However, as I went to my car to grab a charger, by some stroke of luck the homeowner was driving down the street to pull into his garage, and told me that it was “his spot” and refused to move the bins. I tried to tell him there was an intermediary patch of grass in between homes that he could place his bins, instead of directly in front of my car and he drove into the garage and closed it without rebuttal. submitted by /u/andrewshade98 [link] [comments]

  • Downtown dentist recommendations
    by /u/Glittering-Cloud5588 (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 19, 2024 at 3:47 am

    Hi all Does anyone have any downtown (or close) recommendations for dentists? I've approached a couple and am getting tired of being sold invisalign as a starting point. What's worse is that I've used up my annual insurance on one of these experiences. I get that dentists are wanting to make as much as they can from new patients, but I just can't afford that and am looking for a dentist who is willing to help relieve dental pain without the major upselling.

It required antibiotics to treat and did go away, but despite me leaving it completely alone, I've been left with an unsightly pit scar. I am a 32 year old woman and it's making me really self conscious and embarassed 🙁 . If I go to see my doctor would they refer me to a dermatologist? Is this something that can be treated? Does anyone have any recommendations? Thank you submitted by /u/Mouse_rat__ [link] [comments]

  • Looking for some good summer day trips/activities or things to see in and around Edmonton
    by /u/onceinteresting (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 19, 2024 at 1:26 am

    This is our first summer living here and I can’t wait to get out and explore this part of AB! I’m looking for (as stated in the title) things to do in or around Edmonton. Day trips, local and some overnight/weekend ideas. Either family (my husband, myself, 13 y/o son and 18/yo daughter), for just my husband and I sans kids and stuff to do with either kid individually. We are from BC so my daughter has never been of legal age anywhere before now (she is moving here May 2nd once her school is out) but isn’t really into drinking at all. She would probably go for a really neat/novelty type (think Molecular, alchemy, bloom type drinks etc.) drink somewhere with me for her first time out though. Other than that we are all up for pretty much anything! So any fun mom/daughter ideas, family and date suggestions would be really appreciated. We can’t wait to get out and see what our next season here and this awesome province has for us to do. submitted by /u/onceinteresting [link] [comments]

  • Long walk options outside of Edmonton (not Elk Island)
    by /u/Glittering-Cloud5588 (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 19, 2024 at 1:04 am

    Hi all I live in Edmonton. I walk long distances at the weekend (20 miles or so). I normally don't have a car, but this weekend I do and I'd like to travel out of the city for that 20 mile walk. Other than Elk Island, are there any recommendations for anywhere within, say, 2 hours of Edmonton that would have trails/roads of that distance to let me explore? I can only think to drive to Red Deer (Calgary at a push) to just walk around. I'm not against that idea, but I'm sure there are some hidden gems that I'm missing as I've only been here a few years and very rarely left the city. Thanks! submitted by /u/Glittering-Cloud5588 [link] [comments]

  • Transit safety issues - what to do
    by /u/General_Esdeath (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 19, 2024 at 12:45 am

    For everyone complaining and transit safety or other community safety issues, here's something more productive than constant complaining into the void of Reddit: You can contact the Edmonton Police Commission: In order to maintain transparency and accountability to the citizens of Edmonton, the Edmonton Police Commission holds regular monthly meetings, which are open to the public. As an Edmontonian, you are welcome to attend these meetings and provide your input about policing issues in your community. All meetings in 2024 will be held in the River Valley Room at City Hall (1 Sir Winston Churchill Square) at noon, unless otherwise stated. All citizens are welcome to come up to the microphone during that time for public input. Each individual has five minutes to address the Commission on an issue. If you cannot attend a meeting in person but have an Edmonton policing issue to address with the Commission, please contact the Executive Director to make other arrangements at commission@edmontonpolice.ca or 780-414-7510. If you've been impacted by safety issues and want the police to address what happened, I strongly encourage you to reach out to the commission. submitted by /u/General_Esdeath [link] [comments]

  • Have you been delivered empty packages by UPS, Amazon, etc?
    by /u/Embarkbark (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 11:14 pm

    This is partially a rant and partially fact finding. TL;DR - Either a Telus employee or UPS employee stole my iPhone I purchased online through Telus, and shipped me an empty box. Every single person I talk to is passing the buck. EPS mentioned this is a trend in Edmonton. I ordered a new iPhone 15 through Telus. Yesterday I got a notification that the item had shipped, and today UPS came to my door with a package. The box felt super light when he handed it to me, but I didn’t expect my iPhone to be delivered so fast, and figured my husband had ordered a memory card or something (and shippers these days are awful for shipping small things in big boxes.) So I signed for it. When I opened it the box was fucking empty. I immediately called Telus, who said they can’t help without a police report. When I called EPS they said they wouldn’t file a report for it since there’s nothing they can investigate. The officer mentioned he’s had numerous calls for the same thing: empty boxes. He said either someone cuts out the back of them (so the shipping label isn’t broken) or it’s just an empty box from the shipper. But that they don’t investigate them because it never goes anywhere. He suggested I file a fraud claim with my visa (thankfully [???] paid in full for the phone, so I have visa charge back as leverage, otherwise Telus would have zero motivation to help.) For the record: UPS said they’d file a package claim but only if Telus filed it, not me as the receiver. So there seems to be an issue in Edmonton with packages being tampered with. My package appeared in tact but who knows. The label said nothing about Telus or iPhone, but my husband said these shipping companies get used to what things ship in what size boxes. I am just filled with rage at how no one seems to want to help and I’m missing and iPhone, and I guess I want to know how many times this kind of thing happens? Is UPS involved in some sort of stolen goods ring? I thought a package requiring a signature would be safe, no porch pirate issues, and I still got victimized. submitted by /u/Embarkbark [link] [comments]

  • Gondek says never being able to own a home gives Canadians “more freedom”
    by /u/TacoShotz (Calgary: Onward) on April 18, 2024 at 11:09 pm

    https://tnc.news/2024/04/18/gondek-never-own-a-home-freedom/ Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek says the prospect of never owning a home and becoming a forever renter is a liberating experience. Gondek, who owns two properties in Calgary, made the comments during a discussion with the development company RNDSQR. “We’re starting to see a segment of the population reject this idea of owning a home, and they’re moving towards rental because it gives them more freedom,” said Gondek. “They can travel to different places, they can try out different communities, their job may take them from place to place and so people have become much more liberated around what housing looks like, and what the tenure of housing looks like.” ​ Gondek then went on to say that the idea of being able to own a home was like being “stuck in the 40s, 50s and 60s.” “As municipalities, we haven’t kept pace with that change. We’re still stuck in the 40s, 50s and 60s,” said Gondek. According to Gondek’s disclosure statement, the Calgary mayor owns two properties in Calgary – one in Panorama Hills and another downtown in East Village. ​ Gondek’s comments were condemned by Calgary Conservative MP Michelle Rempel Garner. “”If this isn’t a deepfake, this is a perpetuation of a dangerous myth that most renters are renters by choice and have disposable income to travel and the capacity to uproot their residence for work,” Rempel Garner posted on X. Gondek recently faced a recall campaign. Following the Recall Gondek initiative, campaign leader Landon Johnston is slated to hold discussions with Alberta Premier Danielle Smith regarding possible reforms to the province’s recall laws. Johnston handed in a total of 72,271 collected signatures. The campaign required Johnston to gather signatures from 40% of Calgary’s eligible voters, a total of 514,284, within 60 days. In the previous city election, Mayor Gondek secured 176,455 votes out of the 393,090 ballots cast. Although the signature count fell short of the target, Johnston viewed the campaign as a success. He embarked on the effort single-handedly and initially did not anticipate garnering any signatures at all. ​ submitted by /u/TacoShotz [link] [comments]

And that was the reason they could not submit offer to my mortgage broker. Builder 2: Visited showhome 3 days back. Supposed to be meeting today at 5:30 pm. Tired of shopping around, i said let us try to make a deal today. And guess what, price goes up by 10k. Reason building materials and everything went up in 2 days!

  • Street sweep parking enforcement
    by /u/Motive33 (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 7:38 pm

    Anybody know if they're actually enforcing the parking bans this year? Mostly a rant but apparently moving our vehicles to the back driveway has been taken as an invitation for others to just park in front of our house despite the parking ban for street cleaning. For either street cleaning or snow removal the past few years it seems adhearing to the parking ban only screws yourself over. In the winter people leaving their cars out have cleared parking spots while all the snow piles up in front of all the folks who did move their vehicles. Now I move my vehicle for street sweeping and it doesn't matter because people just move their cars in front of my house. It's either a parking ban or it's not. Wish the city would enforce it. ​ /rant submitted by /u/Motive33 [link] [comments]

    I've been here for over half a year trying to find work and I'm finally starting to feel the true depression that follows unemployment. I really don't want to go further down that rabbit hole of lamenting, I'm at the point where I am truly desperate for work. I'm trying to be positive but I'm fighting my fucking head right now. I'd probably still be depressed with work but I'd have a reason to wake up, a way to make money. I don't know what I'm doing, when I look up what to do either I've already done it or I need to know someone, I mean I need friends for connections to work and not be miserable but genuinely who would want to be around someone fighting the thought to go off that fucking lions bridge. I'm not going to but fucking hell how do I work this? If anyone knows where a no one can find a place to work that'd be a huge help at the moment as I need to find any way (especially employment) to be able to be a human. submitted by /u/No-Yaks-Given [link] [comments]

  • Chased by a drug addict yelling death threats at the Churchill connector
    by /u/AviAstro904 (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 6:21 pm

    This morning I took the valley line to Churchill, as I do every morning for my commute, and immediately upon exiting the train was harassed and threatened by a man clearly on drugs. He started screaming at me saying that he was going to kill me if he caught me and chased after me for almost a kilometre before I finally outran him in a parking lot. I yelled to security for help, but they did absolutely nothing to protect me. I made it to Quarters and hopped on a train heading south to safety after losing him. Reported it to police immediately afterwards. It’s a good thing that I’m in shape and can run, because if I couldn’t I’m convinced that I would’ve been seriously injured or worse. It was totally unprovoked. God forbid if it was an elder person or someone who couldn’t get away quickly in my place. What is it going to take before city officials start cleaning up the mess that is ETS?? It’s absolutely unacceptable and disgusting that people have to deal with this on a daily basis. I had my life threatened by literally existing. Rant over; do better city of Edmonton. Edit: I called 911 as soon as I was safe, and gave the police a description of the man and details of the incident. The police appreciated me calling it in but they told me it was very unlikely that they’ll be able to apprehend him, unfortunately. submitted by /u/AviAstro904 [link] [comments]

  • How do you think the new "Blue Sky City" slogan is going to play out this summer?
    by /u/paperplanes13 (Calgary: Onward) on April 18, 2024 at 5:58 pm

    with all the dry, 2024 could rival 2023 for heat and wild fires, how much "Blue Sky" will we really see? Seems like a pointless change to me. https://preview.redd.it/6b8ypbg21avc1.jpg?width=1075&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=35f3fde4b03c9c886934e20f1f7a81d9b066f946 submitted by /u/paperplanes13 [link] [comments]

  • How can I fix this?
    by /u/Ok-Outcome-7153 (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 4:59 pm

    Someone really wanted to get into our yard and instead of climbing over they decided to climb through 🙄. How do I reconnect it the cheapest and easiest way? We’re renting and broke so I’m not going to spend a lot on it. I did reconnect the bottom for now on the hook thing but it’s hardly holding on. It almost seems like the chain link is too small for the gate because it’s really hard to pull to the post. submitted by /u/Ok-Outcome-7153 [link] [comments]

  • A decade later: Calgary didn't turn into a Canadian Detroit
    by /u/wulf_rk (Calgary: Onward) on April 18, 2024 at 1:02 pm

    This was an article published 10 years ago. If you weren't in Calgary then, there was a recurring trope that Calgary would become the next Detroit. This article was by no means alone, it just represents a theme that was in the air then. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/this-canadian-city-could-be-the-next-detroit/article15820368/?service=mobile&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_medium=Referrer%253A+Social+Network+%252F+Media&utm_campaign=Shared+Web+Article+Links I didn't believe it then, and we can see, a decade later that it didn't happen. In fact, quite the opposite. submitted by /u/wulf_rk [link] [comments]

  • River Valley Cleanup in Dawson Park Area

    I saw a bunch of these posters up while on a walk this afternoon, thought I'd share for anyone else who wants to get involved. This is in Riverdale/near Dawson Park, and if you struggle to read from the pic, it's happening this Saturday April 20th at 10am. Anyone know who organized this? A few community members, students, or a specific organization? It's a great opportunity to care for our environment and build community, so I hope it goes well.

  • Hey all, quick question about addiction treatment
    by /u/vyvanse_abuser (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 2:29 am

    Sorry in advance if this isn't allowed here. I need advice on how to get accepted into rehab for substance/alcohol abuse, it's at a point where if I don't deal with it soon I'm going to end up dead. I went one time to henwood but didn't stay long cause I "Didn't need it" and clearly I was wrong haha. I've been trainwrecking really hard for a few weeks and I think it's time to seek some help for it but I have no idea where to start or if my healthcare would cover it or anything, when I google it it's just an information overload so if anyone has a number I can call to start or somewhere I can go meet up with somebody I'd greatly appreciate it. EDIT: Thank you guys for all the resources you've provided, I think I know where to start now. I'm probably going to remove the thread in a few minutes but this has been 100x more helpful than Google. EDIT 2: Holy, I did not expect to get this much help so quickly. I can't thank you guys enough. Someone said to leave the post up for someone else who might need it and I think they're right. I'll be getting in touch with a few of these resources when I wake up tomorrow to weigh my options. submitted by /u/vyvanse_abuser [link] [comments]

  • Calgary Grocery Deals (April 18 to 24, 2024)
    by /u/PurpleGeek (Calgary: Onward) on April 18, 2024 at 12:29 am

    Happy Wednesday! This is a continuation of my pattern of posting what I think are decent grocery deals with the hope that this will save some people some money. As noted previously this is heavily skewed to items that I and my family eat. There are probably additional items that are good deals but I don't know it because they aren't items I use but hopefully my list is still useful to you. A few quick reminders: PC Optimum points are collected at No Frills and Superstore. 1,000pts is worth $1. Scene+ points are collected at Safeway, Sobeys and FreshCo. 100pts is worth $1. The value of Save on Foods points depends on what you redeem them for. If you redeem them for a 4L jug of milk then 1,000pts is worth about $1.50. Other redemptions might make them more or less valuable. Superstore, No Frills and FreshCo are generally willing to price match identical products from (some) other major grocery stores if you show them the item in the competitor’s flyer while checking out so knowing what is on sale at stores that you don't visit can still be useful. I'm told that Save on Foods will also price match, though I have no first hand experience with them. There are some restrictions on this... FreshCo won't price match Safeway or Sobeys. Superstore (at least sometimes) won't price match Coop. The No Frills on 85st SW won't price match FreshCo. Finally, thank you to everyone that has posted positive comments. It's always nice to receive positive feedback. No Frills: Ataulfo Mangoes: $0.88 Allen’s apple juice (1L): $0.88 Strawberries (1lb): $2.79 Campell’s Chunky soup: $1.88 Broccoli crowns: $2.49/lb Cosmic Crisp apples (5lb): $6.99 Cucumbers (3-pack): $3.99 No Name flour (10kg): $9.99 Superstore: Lean ground beef (1.1kg): $9.99 (works out to about $4.12/lb) Country Harvest bread: $2.77 Farmer’s Market grape tomatoes (2lb): $5.00 + 100pts per dollar spent, effectively making them $4.50 PC Blue Menu beans, peas or lentils: (900g): $2.99 PC Blue Menu whole grain pasta (375g): $1.99 Calgary Coop: English cucumber: $1.29 Cal & Gary’s frozen fruit (600g): $3.99 Broccoli Crowns: $2.49/lb Tre Stelle Bocconcini (200g): $5.99 + 20% bonus cash, effectively making them $4.80ea Navel oranges: $1.69/lb + 25% bonus cash, effectively making them $1.27/lb FreshCo: Red Mangos and Avocados: $1ea when you buy 5 or more, buy 5 get 100pts effectively making them $0.80ea when you buy 5 Hot house tomatoes: $0.97/lb General Mills cereal (516-778g): $5.47, buy 2 get 200pts, effectively making them $4.47ea when you buy pairs Schneider’s bacon (375g) $3.97 Dempster’s bread: $3.00 when you buy 2 or more Walmart: Romain Lettuce Hearts (3-pack): $2.94 White mushrooms (227g): $1.44 Clover Leaf canned tuna (170g): $0.97 Christie Crackers: $1.97 Safeway / Sobeys: Spend $50, get 500pts (loadable offer) Lay’s potato chips (220-235g): $1.99 (2 days only, April 18 and 19) Dempster’s bread: $3.00 Honeydew Melon: $6.49, buy 1 get 50pts, effectively making them $5.99ea Save on Foods: Pork tenderloin (fresh): $3.88/lb Avocado (bag of 4): $2.99 submitted by /u/PurpleGeek [link] [comments]

  • Why is the healthcare system trying to kill my mother?
    by /u/kaput_corpus (Stories from in and about Edmonton) on April 18, 2024 at 12:15 am

    My mom has two large ovarian cysts. She got diagnosed less than two months ago. The pain is debilitating. She has been off work for weeks, she can do nothing but lay in bed. She has been turned away by three surgeons for being “too urgent” (they don’t have time to take an urgent case?) and “too high risk” (she has a history of abdominal surgeries and scar tissue). Her family doctor and gynecologist both told her to go to the hospital and try to be taken in for emergency surgery. Two weeks ago she went to the Grey Nuns. They sent her home after some tests. Yesterday she spent 24 hours in the Royal Alex. More tests, and they sent her home and told her to call the surgeon she had been previously referred to. Apparently this referral was sent when she was last seen at the Grey Nuns but it “got lost”. She called that surgeon and it’s a 3-4 month wait. Her tests from yesterday show that her cysts are already bleeding, information they withheld before sending her home. I am at a complete loss for what to do. My mom just turned 50, I can’t lose her. Multiple healthcare professionals have told her she “shouldn’t be in this much pain” but no one seems to care that she is. She’s already filed one complaint with the Alberta College of Physicians. Any help that can be given would be great. submitted by /u/kaput_corpus [link] [comments]
