French Canadien Settlers

Before the Canadian Pacific Railway was completed in 1885, most of the white people living in what is now Alberta were French. One of the first French communities in the Alberta area was at St. Albert, which is just north of Edmonton, in 1843.

By 1911 St. Albert only had 1000 people living there, 761 of these people were French. By 1916, there were 25 000 French Canadians living in Alberta, many choosing to live in Edmonton and surrounding area.
