Edmonton is the capital city in the Province of Alberta. Located on the North Saskatchewan River, Edmonton is surrounded by Alberta’s central region.
According to the 2016 Canadian Census, Edmonton had reached a population of 932,546. Over the past 5 years it had experienced a 14.8% rate of growth compared to the 5% rate of growth in Canada overall. The Edmonton metropolitan area population in 2016 was 1,321,426 making it one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in Canada.
Edmonton is the major economic driver for northern and central Alberta and a major hub for the oil and gas industry. Supply and service industries drive the energy extraction engine, while research develops new technologies and supports expanded value-added processing of Alberta's massive oil, gas, and oil sands reserves. Much of the growth in technology sectors is due to Edmonton's reputation as one of Canada’s premier research and education centres. Research initiatives are anchored by educational institutions such as the University of Alberta (U of A) as well as government initiatives underway at the Alberta Research Council and Edmonton Research Park.
This city is buzzing with entertainment and culture. Edmonton has gained the nickname “Canada’s Festival City” which is reflective of a year-round slate of festivals and entertainment. The sports culture also runs strong by calling home to both the Edmonton Oilers within the National Hockey League (NHL) and Edmonton Eskimos within the Canadian Football League (CFL).
