Alberta’s capital, Edmonton, straddles the North Saskatchewan River, key to its origins as a fur trading post. Today, the wind-swept Prairie city is the administrative centre for both northern Alberta and the entire province.
Approximately a million residents call the city home. Some are students at the University of Alberta and Grant MacEwan University, others are workers who venture north to work in camps associated with the oil and gas sector, which send raw product south to refineries on the city’s east side for processing.
Despite being the seat of government, Edmonton is a blue-collar town that sits on two major transportation corridors: the Canadian National Rail line and the Yellowhead Highway. Trucks pass through the city en route to Canada’s northern territories, while boxcars bearing containers from Asia head south to Chicago.
Redevelopment of the Northlands Coliseum, home of the Edmonton Oilers hockey team during the Gretzky years and successive Stanley Cup victories, promises to change the face of the city as part of its ongoing evolution.
The mix of well-paid government and industrial jobs, as well as a strategic location has given Edmonton a cultural vibrancy that more than makes up for its continental climate. Hosting a wide range of cultural, sporting and tourist attractions, Edmonton boasts more than two dozen festivals each year.
