Even though Alberta is the fourth largest province in Canada, you won't feel as though you're right on top of your neighbours due to the incredible amount of land in this province. From beautiful mountains that are often covered in snow on their peaks, to lakes that appear as though they've never been touched by human hands, there are several natural aspects that make Alberta one of the top areas for those who are considering a move to Canada. Edmonton and Calgary are the most populated cities in Alberta with Edmonton being the capital.
While walking on one of the dozens of trails, you'll often be captivated by the Rocky Mountains with their peaks that seem to never end as well as the dense forests that are located at the base of the mountains. With over 600 lakes in Alberta, there is never a shortage of fishing or simply gazing at the crisp blue water of many of the lakes. Aside from fishing, Alberta is one of the hotspots for skiing with eight resorts for residents and tourists to enjoy. Even though there are several ski resorts, the winter season tends to be quite dry. However, with the cold air in place, resorts easily make their own snow for skiers to enjoy.
Sunshine is usually abundant in Alberta as there are very few rainstorms that occur during the year. The Chinook winds are well-known in the province and can often increase the temperature on a winter day by 20 degrees or more. Although there are many people who have lived in Alberta their entire lives, the province is one that is home to more residents who have moved from other areas across Canada and from other countries, especially the United States. The high standard of living means that neighbourhoods are safe, schools offer the best education possible, and the healthcare system is among the best in Canada. Another benefit of moving to Alberta is that there is currently no sales tax and income tax rates are lower than most other provinces. Pair that alongside a strong economy and the results are jobs in numerous fields being abundant for those who want to call Alberta home.
