"As one of Canada's most innovative dining destinations, Calgary truly is an ideal backdrop for the season finale," said Barb Williams, SVP Content of Shaw Media in a press release.

The Elimination Challenge - at Rush Restaurant and Bar in the city's downtown - will see chefs sweat it out in the kitchen to create a stellar five-course meal.

"Calgary's history with food is as diverse as the landscape that surrounds the city," said John Brunton, Executive Producer at Insight Production Company Ltd.

"From their famous pancake breakfasts at the Stampede to cutting edge fusion restaurants that are getting national recognition, Calgary is the perfect place to end another great season of Top Chef Canada."

There are currently two chefs from Calgary still in the running for Top Chef: Geoff Rogers, 31, executive chef at MARKET and Nicole Gomes, 34, chef and proprietor of Nicole Gourmet Catering.

The finale episode airs on June 10, at 7:00 p.m. MST on Food Network Canada.
