Alberta Overview

The province of Alberta is as rich in geographical diversity as it is in natural resources.

In the west Alberta accesses the Rocky Mountains and is home to some of the most beautiful geography in all of the world. Jasper and Banff National Parks are just two to name. Home to big horn sheep, mountain goats, elks, deer and bears and abundant fishing the area is overflowing with life.

Central-East Alberta is composed of relatively flat to rolling hills covered with farm land. The much lauded Alberta Beef comes from this province.

Northern Alberta is the land of oil, hence the name of the NHL team, the Edmonton Oilers. Much of Alberta's wealth comes from this industry and has enabled it to rid itself of the provincial sales tax.

Albertans are proud of their province and also one of the most vocal politically. Whether on issues of sovereignty, de-centralization of government, transfer payments, the environment, or religious rights Albertans always try to make themselves heard.
