In the minds of most Albertans, "Northern Alberta" begins just beyond the city limits of Edmonton, the provincial capital. While most Albertans are familiar with Edmonton, northern Alberta remains unknown to many residents of the southern part of the province. Full of history, bursting with contemporary energy and offering an expanse of the great outdoors, northern Alberta is a very special part of an exceptional province.
