Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. Edmonton is on the North Saskatchewan River and is the center of the Edmonton Metropolitan Region which is surrounded by Alberta's central region. The city 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 home to North America's largest mall, West Edmonton Mall (the world's largest mall from 1981 until 2004).
Victoria is the capital city of the province of British Columbia and is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island off Canada's Pacific coast. Victoria is the southern most major city in Western Canada and is about 100 km south-west from British Columbia's largest city of Vancouver on the mainland. Named after Queen Victoria, the city is one of the oldest in the Pacific Northwest, with British settlement beginning in 1843. The city has retained many its historic buildings, its two most famous landmarks, Parliament Buildings, and the Empress hotel. Known as "The Garden City", Victoria is an attractive city and a popular tourism destination with a regional technology sector that has risen to be its largest revenue-generating private industry.
