Jobs in Calgary, Canada

Calgary, the largest city in the western province of Alberta, Canada, is home to over 1.3 million people, and has the fastest growing metropolitan area in the country. The city’s economy is underpinned largely by the oil and gas companies, which employ thousands of people and foster the creation of small businesses.

After a difficult period between 2014 and 2016 when the city experienced a period of recession caused by low oil prices, Calgary bounced back quickly. According to ATB Financial, around 35,000 new jobs were created during 2017, and the city was officially declared out of recession.

In addition to oil and gas companies that employ thousands of Calgarians, the city’s job market also benefits from  a high number of head offices per capita and a strong public sector.

Energy Sector

The regional oil boom that took place during the mid-20th century transformed Calgary from an agricultural settlement into a bustling modern city.

Today, Calgary’s top earning companies all belong to the energy sector. Biggest employers are Suncor Energy, Imperial Oil, Husky Energy, Enbridge, Cenovus Energy, Agrium, Canadian Natural Resources, Viterra, TransCanada, Encana, Shell Canada, and Nexen. These companies provide excellent opportunities for engineer graduates, IT students, finance workers, and different types of skilled laborers.

Head Offices

Calgary has the second-highest number of head offices per capita in Canada, and is considered to be one of the most business-friendly cities in the country. Large employers, other than oil and gas companies, that have headquarters in Calgary include supermarket chain Canada Safeway Limited, wholesale distributor Westfair Foods Ltd., telecommunications company Shaw Communication, and Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd.

There are over 200 vacancies for head office jobs in Calgary currently advertised, and these include office administrator, economist, merchandiser, document clerk, HR manager, receptionist, accountant, paralegal, and insurance specialist, among others.

Public Service

Public sector is a major generator of jobs in and around Calgary. The top public sector employers are the University of Calgary, Calgary Zone of the Alberta Health Services, the City of Calgary, the Calgary Board of Education, and a number of other local and provincial government institutions.

Teachers, superintendants, childcare workers, school bus drivers, security guards, and health care professionals are among the most in-demand jobs in the Calgary public sector.
