Alberta-United Kingdom Relations

  • Traditionally, relations with Britain have been very close, with many Albertans serving in Britain during both the First and Second World Wars, and many more Britons making Alberta their new home throughout the last century.
  • Alberta's oldest international office opened in London in 1913, with a focus on immigration, trade and investment. 
  • The United Kingdom (UK) held a referendum on June 23, 2016 to gauge the country’s support for remaining in the European Union (EU). Results were 51.9 per cent voting to leave the EU with a turnout of 72 per cent. The UK government now intends to leave the EU, known as Brexit.
