People who move to Calgary often wonder why it took them so long to discover it!

Calgary's million-plus citizens have created a sophisticated, vibrant and beautiful city for themselves, one that constantly ranks high on preferred-places-to-live lists.

There's plenty of night life – from country to the blues – and lots of opportunity for you and the family to blow off steam at wonderfully-equipped recreational centres or in a city-wide network of parks, nature preserves, walking and biking trails.

It's a great city for shopping, for the arts and especially for the kids, with everything from highly regarded school systems to Western Canada's largest outdoor amusement park.

If you're an angler or a hunter, you'll be in the centre of heaven. In fact, downstream from Calgary, the Bow River is a world famous blue-ribbon trout paradise.

Calgarians live a short drive away from the Canadian Rockies. Banff and Kananaskis are our back yards! Foothills highways and back roads take you to truly beautiful places with plenty of elbow room even at peak season.

Alberta's a wealthy, resource-rich province. That's why we don't have a provincial sales tax. And maybe that's part of the reason why we're a relaxed bunch, favouring the informal, neighbourly lifestyle.

Add to all of this the promise of many years of cogeneration project construction and decades of maintenance work to follow, and we can't think of a better place for a pipe trades craftsperson to 'put down' and grow some roots.

If Alberta's starting to look good to you from any point of view, please tell us you're interested in putting your skills to work with Local 496.

We'll be proud to welcome you!
