Alberta offers many opportunities for work in a range of different skill sets. Many of these positions are paid higher than anywhere else in Canada. View our industry listing for more details.
You'll also save more of the money you earn. We have no provincial sales tax, no health care premiums, and gas is cheaper here than other provinces. That means you'll have more money to spend on the things that really matter, like enjoying all the fun that Alberta has to offer.
Spring and summer in Alberta provides endless potential for fun. The warm, dry weather is perfect for day trips out of the city for picnics, hiking, and enjoying local lakes. Temperatures rarely reach above 30° C, so you'll feel comfortable enjoying the outdoors all day long.
Our winters do get cold and snowy, but it's nothing Albertans can't handle. The lack of humidity makes our snow light and fluffy, and the temperatures are easy to manage with the right warm clothing. Albertans love being outside year round, enjoying skiing, tobogganing, and skating.
Edmonton is Alberta's capital city located in the central/northern part of the province, and is home to over a million people. Its surrounding communities of St. Albert, Sherwood Park, Stony Plain, Spruce Grove, and Leduc are all a short drive away.
