Fun Facts about Edmonton

Edmonton forms Canada's largest city region (9,427 square kilometers to be precise).

Our river valley represents Canada's largest urban parkland (7,300 hectares in all).

North America was invaded by rats in the 18th century but they were eradicated from Alberta 50 years ago.

Beavers, bison, cougars, coyotes, deer, hares, porcupines, moose, skunks and squirrels live in YEG (as do humans).

Our province offers Canada's highest quality of life, actually one of the world's best.

The population of the capital region may double to over 2 million people in 25 years.

Some of us like to get together at festivals, over a hundred are held here annually.
