first go to calgarytransit.com to look for a map with the routes, then go to www.kijiji.ca to look for accomodation, furniture and everything else... my favorite part is kensington/sunnyside, close to downtown (one stop away), with all it's restaurants and coffees, but not as bussy and noisy as downtown... i have some information of calgary on my travel page if you want to check it out... good luck in calgary, you're going to like it if you donĀ“t mind the cold weather.. it's probably snowing by now, spring time =D

It depends a lot on your income. The rental market is insane right now- I heard about one guy who advertised his apartment for rent at $1100 per month and had so many interested applicants that he was able to get $1700. I live in a condo (so, I own it), but some of my neighbours rent theirs from the owners and $1700-1800 is the average rental price in my building for a two bedroom unit (it's about $1300 for one bedroom). You pay your own utility bills on top of that. Calgary is a very big city as well, and if you live far from your work you can easily spend 90-120 minutes in traffic each way (especially if you rely on transit). The best area to live in really depends on your income and your place of employment.
