Canadian Currency - "Dollar"

The Canadian dollar is not the same currency as the American dollar despite sharing the same name. Please exchange your currency before leaving the Edmonton Airport as there are few places to do so in other parts ofhe city. 

This is a joke about our Edmonton winter weather..

Weather in Edmonton

The spring weather in Edmonton in late May is

variable.  We see predictions of daily temps of

15 C to 20 C on average but climate is of course unpredictable.  Bring a rain slicker or light jacket.  If you all cross your fingers it will not snow.
