About Edmonton

Edmonton Alberta, home of the Edmonton Oilers and the birth of the “Great One” Wayne Gretzky! Edmonton is the second largest city in Alberta. It is also the capital of the province. The population of Edmonton, including the surrounding areas is just over 1.3 million. It is considered the “gateway to the north” and the jumping off point for destinations in the northern Oil Sands. I bet you didn’t know that it is the furthest north city in North America with a population over one million.

Living

Being located on the North Saskatchewan River, Edmonton enjoys the privilege of having the largest urban park system in North America. What a great city to raise your family in with so much natural parkland and recreation along this beautiful river. Despite the fact of being located so far north, Edmonton actually has a relatively comfortable climate. With a fairly dry climate, there less precipitation this means less snow shoveling in the winter than a lot of other cities in Canada! Temperatures can vary wildly depending on how the mountains to the west interact with the jets stream and colder Artic air to the north. The Downtown core is home to several older neighbourhoods of which Garneau and Oliver are the most densely populated. I bet you didn’t know that Edmonton has almost 400 neighbourhoods! Probably why there are so many Festivals in Edmonton giving it the nickname “Canada’s Festival City”.

Industry

Being the largest city located the vast oil rich deposits of the Alberta oil sands; it’s not surprising the main economic driver is oil and gas industry. I bet you didn’t know that Alberta has more oil and gas than any other nation in the world behind Saudi Arabia. Since the 1940’s Edmonton has been the Oil Capital of Canada”. Bringing with it numerous jobs in the supply and extraction sector as well as creating one of Canada’s largest centers for technology. Edmonton also has a booming financial district with the head office s of major banks such as Manulife and TD Canada trust located here. Aside from oil and gas and financial industries, it has also been the birth place of some large international retail businesses such as The Brick and ironically Boston Pizza? It is also rated consistently as one of the best economic potential cities in North America. Bet you didn’t know that Edmonton is also home to the largest mall in North America, the Westmount Centre.
