    When moving to a huge city such as Vancouver, InterNations made it easy for me to find fellow expats and the network that I needed.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Calgary

Hello to all Americans in Calgary! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Calgary? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Calgary which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Calgary offers a great quality of life. The “Heart of the New West” is a very liveable city known for hosting not only the Winter Olympics in 1988 that made the most of the beautiful surrounding countryside and Calgary’s closeness to the Canadian Rocky Mountains, but also the annual Calgary Stampede, one of Canada’s biggest festivals, and much more! With the local LRT train network and various bus services, plus the grid-like road network, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the outer neighborhoods such as Arbour Lake or Acadia, which are a 20-minute drive away from Calgary’s center.

Although Calgary has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Calgary, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
