City of Edmonton
Edmonton is the capital for the Province of Alberta. As a large capital city it provides big city amenities but without the congestion and high living costs.
The people of Greater Edmonton represent a great diversity of ethnic origins. This is celebrated in a host of festivals and special events around the city throughout the year. Edmonton has the oldest mosque in North America, built in 1938, as well as places of worship for nearly every religion on the planet.
Edmonton's Capital Health operates 14 hospitals in and around Edmonton, including two in partnership with the Caritas Health Group. Every year Capital Health and its 2,300 physicians handle 369,000 emergency visits, 100,000 hospital admissions and 400,000 health-related telephone calls.
Enjoy warm, summer days that seem to go on forever. Experience the vivid colours of fall or the crisp, bright beauty of an Alberta winter morning. Edmonton is the most northerly of Canada's major cities and is on the same latitude as Hamburg, Germany, and Liverpool, England. At the summer solstice, Edmonton basks in 17 hours and six minutes of daylight.
