Alberta's grandeur and beauty are obvious from the moment you arrive. With vast blue skies and the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, and thousands of hectares of farmland and forests, it won't be long before you're engulfed by Alberta's natural features.

But it's the people of Alberta that give the province its charm and fervor. There seems to be an ardent sense of community inherent in the people who live there. Casual, friendly, hard-working -- you'll feel at home among these family-minded people.

Edmonton, the provincial capital, features world-class attractions including the world's largest mall - West Edmonton Mall, and one of the most vibrant arts communities in North America. Calgary, home of the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede, is the fastest growing city in the country. The province is home to millions of people, and the standard of living is high.

Not to be missed are Banff National Park and Jasper National Park, which are among the most beautiful places on earth. Another world-class attraction is the Royal Tyrell Museum at Drumheller, where you'll fine one of the world's greatest collections of dinosaur remains.
