Hi guys
I am looking at moving to Calgary in the near future from Melbourne, Australia and I am just looking for the best suburbs to live in. I don't mind commuting to the city but wouldn't want to live downtown itself. I am used to living in large houses with big yards not condos or apartments. I would like to know if any of you could name me some good newly developed communities I could rent in. Any info is appreciated. Have a lovely day.

Look in the NW and SW to communities that were established in the 1970s. The commute to downtown is about 12 minutes by car. Lots are 50-75 ft wide, houses are 1800-2500 sq ft.

Are you looking as a single, or for a family? Are you looking to rent alone, or share accommodation? A single in a shared accommodation (with 4-5 bedrooms) is looking at about $500 for rent ... utilities including cable/internet on a house are about $600

The outskirts of the city, in any direction, is entirely newly built homes. The lots are 35 feet wide. The NE and SE are cheaper than the NW and SW. A lot of new immigrants live in the NE, and the crime rate seems to be higher in the NE.

What is your budget?

Where will you be working?

What type of transportation do you wish to use?

Those are some questions you should know first before deciding on an area.

I've lived in Calgary for 30 years, so I can definitely help you out

Hey Brad,

I am in a similar position trekking over to Canada on a working holiday from Australia...moving over at the start of september.
I am interested in finding a generally nice neighbourhood $1500- $2000 a month range to be split by 3 (including myself). Where would you suggest is a pleasant area that is convient preferably within decent public transit distance to the city?!

Cheers, Oliver.
