So my knowledge about where various cities are in Alberta is horrible.

Example: I’m looking on Indeed for stats-related jobs and I see an ad for an instructor at Grande Prairie Regional College. Oh, sweet, I think. I wonder where that is. It sounds like it wouldn’t be all that far up north—



Granted, I’m no Captain Geography when it comes to any other province/state/country/continent, but I’ve never really had a reason to study Alberta and the distribution of its population. Plus, it’s a big chunk of earth, so there’s a lot of it to know.

  1. For such a big country area wise, Canada doesn’t have a lot of people. I may be wrong on this but i thought I read somewhere that 80% of its population lives in the south, within 300 miles of the US border. Yeah winters get long and cold up north.


    1. I think the stat I remember is something like 90% live within 100 miles of the US border. Blame Toronto and its surrounding metro area.
