Alberta boasts world-class national parks and an active economy. Home to the Canadian Rocky Mountains and parts of the Great Plains, the Albertan landscape is diverse with mountains, prairies, desert badlands, coniferous forests, and more than 600 lakes.
Calgary, Alberta’s largest city, has an active and growing economy encompassing energy, financial services, entertainment, transportation, logistics, manufacturing, aerospace, health, and tourism sectors. The bustling city is a short drive from the world-renowned Banff National Park, which is one of the most visited national parks in North America with more than three million tourists annually.
The capital, Edmonton, is one of Canada’s premier cultural, governmental and educational centers. Nicknamed “Festival City,” for its year-round slate of festivals and home to North America’s second-largest mall, West Edmonton Mall, the Art Gallery of Alberta and Muttart Conservatory, Edmonton offers plenty of entertainment, shopping, arts and culture activities. The city is also considered the “Gateway to the North” and “Oil Capital of Canada,” as it is the staging point for oil sands and diamond mining projects in Alberta and the North West Territories.
From bustling cities and active economic opportunities to world-class outdoor adventure and scenic landscapes, Alberta offers plenty of possibilities for any lifestyle.
