Edmonton’s economy is primarily based on the agricultural, energy and forest industries. Secondary industries are manufacturing and business service. Edmonton is also the main centre of distribution for the west, with warehouses to handle consumer goods being stockpiled to supply the western retail market.
The City of Edmonton, capital of Alberta, is located on the Trans Canada Highway and Highway #2. Edmonton is situated on the North Saskatchewan River and is near the geographical center of the province. Edmonton is commonly referred to as the “Gateway to the North” due to its strategic position on the economic divide between the productive farmlands of central Alberta and a vast, resource-rich north hinterland.
The population of Edmonton numbers approximately 981,280.
