Welcome to Alberta

Capital: Edmonton

Motto: (Strong and Free) Fortis et Liber

Flower: Wild Rose

Population, 1998: 2,913,350

 

The Land

 

Roughly half of the southwestern section of the province is dominated by mountains and foothills - striking reminders of the glaciers that, over millions of years, formed, moved and receded in the area. Peaks of the Rocky Mountains located in Alberta range from 2 130 to 3 747 meters in elevation.

Over one-half of the province of Alberta, or approximately 350 000 km2, is covered by forests. Of the total forest area, 216 000 km2 are classified as commercially productive forest land and contain both hardwood and softwood species.

 

Attractions

 

The Edmonton Alberta Capital Region features more than 40 attractions of interest, including galleries, museums, zoos, and historical sites. These attractions, including West Edmonton Mall, Odyssium (formerly the Edmonton Space & Science Center), Fort Edmonton Park and the Alberta Legislature Building, offer enjoyment and entertainment value for all.

Economy

Alberta has one of the world’s most productive agricultural economies, producing about 25 percent of the value of Canada’s annual output. Approximately 22 million hectares of cultivated and uncultivated land are used as pasture and forage for livestock. While wheat remains the primary crop, the production of new crops continues to expand as the industry diversifies. The province maintains the largest livestock population in Canada.

 

Long known as Canada’s "energy province," Alberta has more than 65 percent of the country’s reserves of conventional crude oil, over 80 percent of its natural gas, and all of its bitumen and oil-sands reserves.
