Alberta Immigration

Alberta Immigration

Alberta, one of Canada’s fastest-growing provinces, is home to Edmonton and Calgary, two of the country’s largest cities. Canada’s Western province of Alberta is renowned for its physiographic diversity; it is home to the towering Rocky Mountains, glacial lakes, a sizable area of boreal forest, and vast fertile prairies. Massive quantities of coal, natural gas, oil, minerals, and Alberta oil sand strengthen Alberta’s status as an energy-rich province in terms of natural resources.
