While Alberta has two major cities – Calgary and Edmonton – the vibe throughout the province are that of a small town. The community is important here and no matter where someone chooses to live in the province they will generally find a sense of connectedness. From the mountains to the west, to the prairies to the east, Alberta is a province of unique and interesting sights from many small towns, to the world’s largest Easter egg and the world’s largest perogy.
Natural resources (oil and gas) have been the driving force in employment and Alberta is now seeing growth in the hospitality market. This explains the need for new workers in food service, retails, finance, health, trades, and education. It is a top destination for immigration and offers a more affordable standard of living than some provinces. Plus, with Calgary consistently in the top 10 of best places to live, it’s a lifestyle that’s easy to adapt to.
