Edmonton, the capital city of the province of Alberta, is located on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. It serves as the central hub of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region, surrounded by the central region of Alberta. The city marks the northern end of the “Calgary–Edmonton Corridor,” a region defined by Statistics Canada that stretches between Edmonton and Calgary, encompassing several smaller municipalities in between.

As of 2021, Edmonton had a city population of 1,010,899 and a metropolitan population of 1,418,118, ranking it as the fifth-largest city and sixth-largest metropolitan area (CMA) in Canada.

The city embraces multiculturalism with various other ethnic groups contributing to its vibrant fabric.

Edmonton serves as a vibrant cultural, governmental, and educational center. It proudly carries the moniker “Canada’s Festival City” due to its year-round calendar of festivals and events.

Edmonton plays a critical role as the major economic center for northern and central Alberta, particularly in the oil and gas industry. The Edmonton Metropolitan Region boasts significant major projects, estimated at $57.8 billion in 2014, with a substantial focus on the oil and gas, oil sands, and pipeline sectors.

Historically, Edmonton has been renowned as the “Oil Capital of Canada” due to its strong presence in the petrochemical industries during the 1940s. The city’s economy thrives on the supply and service industries supporting energy extraction, alongside research and development to advance technology and value-added processing of Alberta’s vast oil, gas, and oil sands reserves. These reserves rank as the second-largest in the world, surpassed only by Saudi Arabia.

Edmonton’s growth in technology sectors is largely attributed to its esteemed reputation as a premier research and education hub in Canada. Leading educational institutions such as the University of Alberta (U of A), along with government initiatives such as Alberta Innovates and Edmonton Research Park, anchor research initiatives. The U of A campus houses the National Institute for Nanotechnology, further solidifying the city’s standing in the field of scientific advancement.
