Calgary Suburbs Real Estate
The vast majority of the region's 1.2 million residents actually live within the City (proper) whose civic population itself has well surpassed the 1,000,000 mark. Calgary covers a land area of 726 km² and is immediately surrounded by two municipal districts, Rocky View No. 44 to the north, west and east; and Foothills No. 31 to the south. Search country listings in Foothills county, a region that covers a large area northwest of the town of Peace River, extending from the Eastern Slopes northeast to the Swan Hills and search also for country real estate in the Rocky Mountain county, which covers over half of Alberta's western border. Unlike most cities with a sizeable metropolitan area, most of Calgary's suburbs / surrounding -residential community within commuting distance of Calgary- are incorporated into the city proper, with the notable exceptions of the City of Airdrie to the north, Cochrane to the northwest, Strathmore to the east, and Springbank / Bearspaw acreages to the west. Though it is not technically within Calgary's metropolitan area, the Town of Okotoks is only a short distance to the south and is considered a Calgary suburb as well.
