Princess Elizabeth Avenue, is an arterial road in central Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, that runs on a southwest to northeast path, cutting through the city's normal grid pattern. It skirts just to the south of Edmonton City Centre Airport, and passes Kingsway Mall and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. Prior to the opening of Yellowhead Trail in the early 1980s, Highway 16 followed Princess Elizabeth Avenue between 118 Avenue and 109 Street before continuing west on 111 Avenue.
During the 1951 royal tour of Canada, the then Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited Edmonton, the street was renamed in honour of Princess Elizabeth. In 1939, her father King George VI, visited Edmonton, prompting the naming of the adjacent Kingsway (Avenue).
