Our Bursaries


Limitless opportunities and huge adventures await you in northern Alberta. 150 energetic communities spread across 380,000 km2 of wide open potential, thousands of new jobs each year in Canada's strongest economy—its history in the making and you can be part of it.

This is the right place to start or advance in your career – and the cool thing is that you can find new opportunities just about everywhere. Whether you choose to live in a small town, mid-sized city or way out in the country – you will always be close to great jobs, incredible natural beauty and vibrant community life.

We are Canada’s outback – a vast area of grandiose lakes, mighty rivers, abundant wildlife and untapped wilderness. Outdoor opportunities abound, including mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing, jet boating, ATVing, and hiking in the summer, and snowmobiling, dog sledding, downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing in the winter. In addition there are the incredible Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)!
