By 1913, he was General Manager of Stobart Sons & Company, President of the Union Overall Company, and Director of the North Empire Fire Insurance Company and the International Guarantee Company. He moved to Calgary, Alberta around 1914 where he engaged in the dry goods business. On 1 January 1886, he married Sarah Woodhouse (1866-1932) at Winnipeg. They had five children: Irene Maud Bulling (1887-?), Elizabeth Macarthur Bulling (1888-?), Claude Bulling (1890-?), Georgie Bulling (1891-?), and Frank Bulling (1895-?).
