It’s certainly safe to say that millions of Canadians understand Toronto, Ontario as a world-class city in a major province. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the region works for everyone, forever.

There’s something so tempting about leaving Ontario’s rugged, competitive surroundings for calmer and more affordable pastures out west.

According to Alberta’s Real Estate Association, the province saw a migrational increase of over 50,000 people relocating to Alberta by the end of 2022, representing a 207% jump from the previous year.

It’s not difficult to understand why, when you put things in perspective. In fact, the cost of living in Calgary is 18% less compared to Toronto, with housing prices in Toronto almost doubling those found in Calgary. Remarkably, the real estate market in Calgary has seen a boom, while Ontarians fight to gain traction in a volatile environment.

Needless to say, there’s no better time than now to purchase a home in Alberta, and developers like Shane Homes have made it easier than ever to build the perfect home in the up-and-coming city of Calgary, which brings with it a wealth of opportunities for residents, both naturally and economically.
