Edmonton is on the North Saskatchewan River and the city with nearly 1 million population is the Alberta’s second-largest city and Canada’s fifth-largest municipality. Known as the “Gateway to the North”, the city is a staging point for large-scale oil sands projects occurring in northern Alberta and large-scale diamond mining operations in the Northwest Territories. Edmonton is a cultural, governmental and educational centre. It hosts a year-round slate of festivals, reflected in the nickname “Canada’s Festival City”.
