    When moving to a huge city such as Vancouver, InterNations made it easy for me to find fellow expats and the network that I needed.

InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Edmonton

Hello to all Americans in Edmonton! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Edmonton? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Edmonton which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Edmonton can offer you a great expat life. The capital of Canada's Alberta province is a modern city known for being a cultural, governmental and educational center, for its rich natural resources, history, culture and hosting a number of festivals all year round, and much more! With the Edmonton Transit Service (ETS) and available road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the residential suburbs of Edmonton such as Strathcona or Ritchie, for example, which are less than a 15-minute commute away from Edmonton’s center.

Although Edmonton has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Edmonton, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
