Prosperous Calgary - Top Earners


Calgary City Scene REsized

Prosperous Calgary


We live in an amazing City – we have heart, we have resiliency, we have a philanthropic backbone, we have…too many other fantastic attributes to mention and better left for another time…..but what we do have is 2.9% of Calgarian’s pegged as top 1% income earners nationwide.     


What constitutes a top 1% earner?  A minimum gross income of $191,000 per year separates the top earners from the rest of the pack.


Certainly good news for our City – the top tier helps fuel our local economy, creates a prosperous trickle-down effect to other segments and are a big draw in the availability of luxury goods.
