Edmonton is the capital of Alberta, a Canadian province. It is the northernmost city with a population over 500,000 in North America. It is situated in the central region of the province, in an area with some of the most fertile farmland on the prairies. It is the second largest city in Alberta, population 712,391 (2005), and is the hub of the country's sixth largest Census Metropolitan Area, population 1,040,000 (2006). A resident of Edmonton is known as an Edmontonian.

At 684 kmē, the City of Edmonton covers an area larger than Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto or Montreal, although less than one-third of Ottawa.

Edmonton is at the north end of the Calgary-Edmonton Corridor (one of four such regions that together comprise 50% of the Canadian population) and is a staging point for large-scale oilsands projects occurring in northern Alberta and large-scale diamond mining operations in the Northwest Territories.

Edmonton is Canada's second most populous provincial capital (after Toronto) and is a cultural, government and educational centre. It plays host to a year round slate of world-class festivals, earning it the title of Festival City. It is home to North America's largest mall and Canada's largest historic park. In 2004, Edmonton celebrated the centennial of its incorporation as a city.
