Alberta is Canada's 4th most populated province. The Capital city of Alberta is Edmonton and the largest city is Calgary.



The biggest industry in Alberta is oil and gas. Alberta is the largest producer of crude oil and natural gas in Canada. The development of Alberta's oil industry has created a wide variety of jobs and is a desired location for immigrant workers due to prevailing wages.

Alberta has a dry continental climate with warm summers and cold winters. The province is open to cold arctic weather systems from the north, which often produce extremely cold conditions in winter. In the winter temperatures can reach -24° in northern Alberta and 0°C in southern Alberta. In the Summer temperatures reach up to 21°C in northern Alberta and 28°C in southern Alberta.
