As per the Calgary Herald, Alberta is now 4 Million strong. The province is on a growth path that is breaking records.

In the last 3 months alone, we have grown by 42,834 residents, or a 1.08 growth rate.

An Alberta Municipal Affairs publication shows the population in 2009 at 3,520,268.  

 

For Calgary a census in April 2013 stated our population was at 1,149,552 and growing.

 

In June from the Calgary Herald: Calgary’s rental apartment vacancy rate is the lowest in the country with average monthly rents increasing the highest, according to Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. In its spring Rental Market Survey released Thursday, the agency said Calgary and Edmonton had the lowest vacancy rates in Canada in April at 1.2 per cent followed by St. John’s (1.5 per cent). 


The consequence for real estate is obvious.
