Alberta

The westernmost of Canada’s three Prairie Provinces, Alberta squeezes itself between British Columbia and Saskatchewan, directly above Montana. It is also one of only two entirely landlocked Canadian provinces. Alberta is named after one of Queen Victoria’s daughters, Princess Louise Caroline Alberta. Early Western arrivals to Alberta were fur traders. Only after railroads were built across the prairies did settlements begin to take hold here. French, Scandinavian, Ukrainian, and German settlers headed west to take on the prairie land. Southwestern Alberta marks the transition point where the Canadian Rockies flatten out into the plains. In the 1800s, the plains were killing fields for bison, whose hides and tongues were prized. Though bison are making a comeback, the rangeland around Alberta is now cattle country. Half of Canada’s beef comes from Alberta. Calgary is nicknamed Cowtown and plays host to the world’s biggest outdoor rodeo, the Calgary Stampede. Beekeeping is another important industry. Beyond honey production, the bees keep Alberta’s canola fields pollinated. Fishing and hunting for moose, deer, ducks, geese, walleye, pike, and trout are important in Alberta.
