APPLETON has an office in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Calgary is a young, energetic city of one million people. Calgary serves as the headquarters of Canada’s oil and natural gas industry. In recent decades the employment opportunities that the industry has provided have attracted Canadians from other provinces and immigrants from all over the world, resulting in an increasingly multi-cultural society. Its position at the heart of Alberta’s beef country is reflected in the Western-themed festival known as the Calgary Stampede. Calgary is also the major gateway to Banff and the Rocky Mountains, which are 1.5 hours’ drive to the West.
