    Edmonton is the capital of the Canadian province of Alberta. Edmonton is on the North Saskatchewan River and is the centre of the Edmonton Capital Region, which is surrounded by Alberta's central region. The city had a population of 812,201 in the 2011 Census, making it Alberta's second-largest city and Canada's fifth-largest municipality. This population represents 70 percent of the total 2011 population of 1,159,869 within the Edmonton census metropolitan area, Canada's sixth-largest CMA by population. Edmonton is the northernmost North American city with a metropolitan population over one million. A resident of Edmonton is known as an Edmontonian. Edmonton's historic growth has been facilitated through the absorption of five adjacent urban municipalities, including Strathcona, North Edmonton, West Edmonton, Beverly and Jasper Place, and a series of annexations of surrounding rural lands until 1982. Edmonton serves as the northern anchor of the Calgary–Edmonton Corridor and is a staging point for large-scale oil sands projects occurring in northern Alberta and large-scale diamond mining operations in the Northwest Territories. Edmonton is a cultural, governmental and educational centre. It hosts a year-round slate of festivals, reflected in the nickname "The Festival City." It is home to North America's largest mall, West Edmonton Mall, and Fort Edmonton Park, Canada's largest living history museum. In 2004, Edmonton celebrated the centennial of its incorporation as a city.

Examples of Edmonton in a Sentence

  1. Chris Creamer:

    You look at examples, say, between baseball and hockey. You have the New York Rangers and the Texas Rangers or the Edmonton Oilers and the Houston Oilers have existed for many years in hockey and football and it’s hard to argue that there’s going to be confusion in 2018 for these names that have existed together with no issues for 40, 50, 60 years.

  2. Center Ryan Kesler:

    We played good enough to win, sometimes you're not going to win games. That's the way this league is. Five out of six points on the road is good, especially with the back-to-back( in Edmonton and Vancouver) here at the end and with travel and not getting in until late.

  3. Sebastian Coe:

    We had a medical facility there which I don't think I've ever seen in any championship, Olympics or world championships, in Seville( 1999), we were dealing with 41 degrees of temperature. I went to Edmonton( 2001), the numbers in the stadium make this look like a first-class problem.
