The World's Cleanest City: Calgary, Alberta

Calgary has experienced a great year for global achievements; being considered one of the worlds best places to live, one of the best cities to raise a family in and Canada’s top producing real estate market both residential and commercial. Adding to the list of recent accolades, Calgary has just been voted the world’s cleanest city!
