About Edmonton

Edmonton was founded on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River and served as a Hudson’s Bay Company trading outpost that grew to become Canada's Gateway to the North and Alberta’s Capital City. Boasting a diverse population of over 1.3 million people, the city has an open and welcoming atmosphere, with activities and attractions for people of all interests. Edmonton is the ideal place to explore nature and enjoy the outdoors, with the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in North America. From mouth-watering restaurants and cafés to numerous outdoor activities and festivals, to the Telus World of Science, multiple museums and historical sites, there’s something for everyone!
