by Eminent Overseas Study and Immigration Consultants
Alberta is a province in western Canada that is surrounded to the west by the Canadian Rocky Mountains and to the east by extensive plains and badlands.  The Northwest Territories are to the north. Their closest southern neighbor in the United States is the state of Montana, with whom they share an international peace park (Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park).

In Alberta, there are nearly 500 protected sites spread across 27,525 sq km (10,627 sq mi), including 75 provincial parks. Additional 63,000 sq km are covered by its five national parks, three of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. More than four million people live in Alberta, mostly in Calgary and Edmonton, which are the two largest cities. With a total size of 661,000 sq km, it is the fourth-largest province in Canada (255,214 sq mi).

Despite being referred to as a prairie province, the region has a variety of land forms, including rolling foothills, rich plains, and desert badlands in addition to towering mountains, glacial lakes, and extensive boreal forests. There are more than 600 lakes and 245 rivers in Alberta.

As far as the language is concerned; the majority language of Alberta is English, but due to its multicultural heritage, it also has speakers of many other tongues, including French, German, Ukrainian, Dutch, and just about every other language in between.

Applications for permanent residence are handled by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Final judgments on these applications are likewise rendered by the federal government.
