  • Alberta


    Alberta, named after Queen Victoria's fourth daughter, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, is Canada's fourth largest and fourth most populated province.

    Alberta is Canada's sunniest province and has warm summers and cold winters, which are often interrupted by chinooks, warm winds from the mountains that quickly raise temperatures above freezing.

    Alberta is blessed with natural beauty: a varied landscape featuring foothills, glaciers, and the majestic Rocky Mountains to the west; boreal forests in the north; central parkland; vast prairies in the south, and desert badlands to the southeast. Alberta has an abundance of wetlands, including hundreds of lakes and rivers, as well as nature and wildlife.
