St. Albert is one of the oldest communities of Alberta. It was founded by the Oblate priests of Mary Immaculate and named after Father Albert Lacombe. Predominantely a Metis Settlement St. Albert changed quickly with the arrival of the priests. It has now grown to a town of over 60.000 inhabitants.
St. Albert is only a few minutes away from Edmonton but has kept its uniqueness.

    Enjoyed your page, we did not make it up your way when we visited the Rockies, mainly Banff to Jasper. The Rockies are one of my favourite places in this world (summer of course).
