Working on Notables allows you to highlight an individual, show what a group of Albertans accomplished or just show Alberta off. From musicians to soldiers, scientists to business, government and religious leaders, Alberta has many accomplished people, born in Alberta or come there for opportunity. This partial list shows some Alberta people who rose to success and others who made our world a better place. Some don't seem to have profiles on WikiTree yet, and many of the existing profiles may need help with genealogical sources, connections and categories. Are you a fan? A relative? See anyone who catches your eye? Maybe you can find inspiration for your next micro-project!

Not all of these people were born in Alberta, but they have been residents of Alberta who have made meaningful contributions.
