Description : The Arab Oil Boycott of 1974 caused oil prices to climb steeply. While causing business disruption across most of Noth America, it spurred madcap exploration in Western Canada. The oilpatch headquartered in Calgary grew rapidly. The city,s population grew from 325,000 in 1974 to 650,000 by the early 1980s.
Today, Calgary,s population is over the 800,000 level, with slow and steady growth. The 1996-1998 gas exploration boom, offsetting a relatively weak Eastern Canadian and B.C. economy, has led to a large influx of new residents into the city. The city has grown by an average of 20,000 people per year over the past three years.
