Calgary is the largest city in the Province of Alberta, Canada.


The city is among the sunniest in Canada, with 2,400 hours of annual sunshine, on average. Calgary experiences a dry humid continental climate with long, cold, dry, but highly variable winters and short, moderately warm summers. The climate is greatly influenced by the city's elevation and proximity to the Rocky Mountains. Calgary's winters can be uncomfortably cold; but warm, dry Chinook winds routinely blow into the city from over the mountains during the winter months, giving Calgarians a break from the cold.


The population of the City of Calgary according to its 2010 municipal census is 1,071,515,
