Alberta's North

Alberta's NorthThe largest of the province's six tourism areas, this region encompasses a vast expanse of land stretching from just north of Edmonton to the border with the Northwest Territories.

The Aboriginal Peoples of Treaty 8 live here and the area was important to the Fur Trade, which resulted in the development of Métis communities, the first Francophone communities in the province. Some of the first settlers were trying to find an overland route to the Klondike Gold Rush.
