Of course, some families relocate because mom or dad was offered a new job. Other situations cause families to relocate just for the possibility of employment in the new city. If you've recently moved to Calgary and you're on the hunt for a new job, here are a few of the hottest industries and positions to consider.


The construction industry is booming and the forecasted growth for 2015 will only make it hotter. Many new jobs are popping up in this industry including welders, millwrights and pipefitters. There are also plenty of scholarships for apprentices available.


Maybe the most in-demand industry across the city, Healthcare is booming right now. With the aging population and the expected growth of the city, this industry is in need of technicians, nurses and other workers. You may have to think a little differently to break into this industry, however. Many positions are available for the following:

  • Dental Hygienists
  • Patient Services Aids
  • Healthcare Administrators
  • Nurses
  • Technicians
  • Social Assistants
  • Child Care Workers
  • Occupational Therapists
  • And More!

This is a hot industry and is expected to remain that way for quite some time.


Those with the right education and a little experience can find a position as a manager. Many businesses need managers to help run their operation. Opportunities are found within the healthcare, public administration, finance, construction and other fields throughout the city.

With the lowest unemployment rate in all of Canada and plenty of new job opportunities, it may be time to consider relocating to Calgary. There are many other industries in need of workers, but the Construction, Healthcare and Management fields are currently the ones with the most demand for jobs.
