NE is the most affordable area in calgary if you are renting. Border of NE & NW is most secure (panorama hills, coventry & countryhills etc.)

Really depends...I think Calgary is super safe but I'm a 30ish male. If you are the same, I'd live in a trendy area: Mission, Inglewood, even *gulp* the renovated East Village (the city is trying to clean it up but large beat cop presence, you actually feel safer than surburbia). In the South, you have Bonavista, Parkland which are both safe.

I'd suggest you tell people price range, need for certain services, then someone can narrow it down for you.

Cheers

Ted

If you are looking for accomodation near university then NW would be better option for you.You may look upon kijiji, craiglist Calgary. I am in NE part so it takes 40 min to commute to university by public transport.

Hi,


Does anybody know the Beltline community within Calgary? We have found a really nice little apartment there but we heard some bad stories about that place like there are prostitualts at night etc.

We don’t know what to do now as we need the apartment urgently however we don’t want to move with our little son somewhere unsafe.

I would appreciate your opinion if any.

Thank you,
Christine

calgary is quite big
it depends in if you plan to take public transit or drive
go to homerent.ca and search based on your job location
that makes it easier take a 6 month lease and then move once you know your way around the city
