Alberta Family

Top of page

A report on Alberta's rapid expansion in the fields of education, industry and welfare, indicating the increased development of her resources. The film tells the story of a rural Alberta family that has been affected by these changes, for the young people have left the farm to work in the booming oil industry, in the improved educational system, in the growing city of Calgary, and in the foothill forests covering three-quarters of the province. The parents, however, remain on the farm--for agriculture is still Alberta's big industry.
