Overview

Bordered to the west by British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains, Alberta is officially a prairie province.

Alberta was named after Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria. Lake Louise and Mount Alberta were also named for her. Alberta is landlocked, sharing a border to the south with Montana, to the west with British Columbia, to the North with the Northwest Territories and to the east with Saskatchewan.

Today Alberta is home to approx. 4.2 million people, around half of whom live in the metropolitan areas of Edmonton and Calgary. The province’s main tourist draws are the Rocky Mountain towns of Banff, Canmore, Lake Louise and Jasper.
