Currently, the number of active listings is sitting at a supply of 1.58 months.

Within the City of Calgary, in February 2023, a total of 63.3% out of all MLS® listings were sold when compared to the active listings which were recorded on the last day of the month (excluding expired and terminated listings throughout the month).

These are very great stats on the housing market in Calgary. However, I think the current economic state and pandemic needs to be considered with the current housing market.
