Alberta is a western province of Canada. The capital, Edmonton, is near the geographic centre of the province and is the primary supply and service hub for Canada’s crude oil, the Athabasca oil sands and other northern resource industries.
Alberta is simply an amazing place to study in Canada. One interesting thing about this province is the employment Options After Graduation. Alberta has a large and diverse economy, with a broad range of employment opportunities for graduates upon completion of their studies in the province. Also, there is subsidized education for minors.
If you are studying in a longer-term academic program in an Alberta College or University, your children are eligible for public school subsidies. This can save each minor child and their parents over $10,000 in fees per year.
