The mountain town of Canmore is gaining popularity with purchasers of second homes.

With great scenery and sporting environment, the town of just 12,000 residents is a hidden gem in Alberta, 81 km from Calgary.

Although it is relatively unknown by those outside the province there is no shortage of demand for property, often from Calgary. That means picking up a bargain second home is unlikely, with the average price for a single-family home at $836,000 while a condo will set you back $400,000.
