Albert Canyon was a railway-based village in the Rogers Pass area of British Columbia, Canada, located near a hot spring known as Canyon Hot Springs and also a "pusher" station for pass-climbing engines of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The name "Albert" comes not from Prince Albert, as was common in the period, but for Albert Rogers, nephew of Major Rogers, the discoverer of the pass.
