Tourism

Alberta, a unique tourist destination.

The province has a lot for you to discover, from the warmth of its inhabitants, the beauty of its landscapes and its turquoise waterways, the immensity of its wheat fields to the uniqueness of its Dinosaur Park or its multiple festivals. There's no doubt about it, you will find Alberta very attractive.

Out of the 13 Canadian sites declared by UNESCO as part of the World Heritage, five are in the province. Each of them is a genuine national treasure: Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump, Waterton Lakes National Park of Canada that is part of the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, Banff and Jasper National Parks, Wood Buffalo National Park, and Dinosaur Provincial Park. In addition, there are more than 60 other provincial parks, all of them extraordinarily and unforgettably beautiful.

The CDÉA supports initiatives in order to promote the value added of bilingualism and the development of French products and tourist packages.  To that end, a website dedicated to French-speaking visitors was created to better inform them in French about tourist attractions, www.tourismealberta.ca, as well as a tour guide and leaflets.

In concrete terms, we strive to:

  • Develop tourism strategies aiming to ensure the value added of the French language and to develop original tourist products;
  • Work in collaboration with neighbouring provinces on joint projects;
  • Collaborate with regional and provincial tourist organizations in order to create bilingual projects and raise awareness about them;
  • Promote and support francophone tourism companies;
  • Promote francophone tourist traffic in Alberta; and
  • Introduce French-speaking Alberta to Canada and the rest of the world.
