The capital city of Alberta and Canada’s fifth-largest municipality is home to a bit more than 1 million people. To this day, Edmonton remains the northernmost city in North America with a population of over 1 million inhabitants. While Edmonton’s close location to the beautiful Canadian Rockies makes this city an appealing tourist destination, each year the city welcomes thousands of visitors searching to soak in local flavours. The many festivals that Edmonton hosts annually have even earned Edmonton the nickname of “The Festival City”.
It therefore comes as no surprise that Edmonton enjoys a flourishing economy. Like Calgary, Edmonton is a major centre for the oil and gas industry. While this industry dominates the city’s economy, Edmonton is also home to a prolific technology sector and is the birthplace of many companies and store concepts that were able to able achieve international status. (Think Boston Pizza, The Brick and AutoCanada among others.)
If you are thinking of moving to Edmonton—or if you are currently residing there—as a professional it is important to properly prepared yourself for the worst-case scenario.
