Alberta is the official provincial song of Alberta, Canada. It was adopted in preparation for the province's centennial celebrations in 2005.[1]

The song was selected following a competition mandated by the Alberta Official Song Act, which was introduced in the Legislative Assembly of Alberta by Calgary Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) Wayne Cao in May 2001, and passed by the legislature in November of that year.

The chosen song, selected by the 13-member Alberta Official Song Committee was written by Mary Kieftenbeld.[2]

The song has been recorded in country and pop versions. Both recordings may be downloaded for free and in MP3 format from an Albertan government website.
