Throughout the early decades of the twentieth century, thousands of people continue installing in Alberta, lured by the promise of free land to cultivate. The economy of the province until the end of the First World War, markedly depended on agriculture. The discovery of oil reserves in 1914 and Canada’s entry into the war and little industrial diversification of the economy of the province.
After the war, entered into a great economic depression. The low prices charged for goods produced by farms and large periods of drought destroyed the agricultural economy of the province between 1918 and 1921. This year, the majority of the population of the province vote for representatives of a political party recently founded, and practically unknown, the United Farmers of Alberta, conservative tendencies. Until then, the province was ruled by the Liberal Party of Alberta. Since 1921, all governors of Alberta political party leaders would be conservative. The United Farmers of Alberta instituiria public schools throughout the province and built several roads and railways.
Step to recover its economy from 1922. However, the province would come back into recession, much larger than the one in 1920, with the onset of the Great Depression in 1929. Major periods of drought spread throughout the 1930’s and great plagues of grasshoppers devoured much of what the farmers of the time managed to cultivate. The few farmers who managed to cultivate a successful harvest had to charge reasonable prices. As a result, the vast majority of farmers are indebted. Many fled in the direction of the countryside to cities – which were also hit by the Depression, with the suspension of payments of shops and businesses, and high unemployment. In 1934, the population of Alberta once again vote for representatives of a political party recently founded, and almost unknown, the Social Credit.

Had promised to solve the population problems of the Depression, but the few steps that I take Aberhert try to solve the problems of the Depression were annulled by the Parliament of Canada, which considers that such measures were unconstitutional.
The effects of the Great Depression would be extended until 1939, when Canada entered the Second World War. Since then, Alberta’s economy flourish. The cities of Calgary and Edmonton industrializes, attracting thousands of people. Regular periods of rain again in 1938, allowing farmers to grow large quantities of food. Weapons, food supplies and many were sent to Montreal and from there to the United Kingdom.
In 1947, the discovery of large reserves of oil in Leduc, a small town near Edmonton. The province since industrializes quickly. In 1954, manufacturing had surpassed agriculture as the largest source of income in Alberta. Thousands of people, many of them immigrants, settled in the province. Royalties that the government of Alberta received by oil extraction in the province allowed the construction of roads, hospitals, schools and improvements to various public services. The province is rapidly urbanizing. In 1945, only 25 of the population lived in Alberta’s two biggest cities of the province, Calgary or Edmonton. In 1966, this percentage had risen to 50 , and now this percentage is approximately 70 .
During the 1960s and 1970s, were found in the province extensive reserves of natural gas and oil. Until the 1950s, Alberta was also a major producer of coal, but the shrinking use of coal as fuel in North America gradually decreased annual production of coal in Alberta. This production was stabilized only in 1967, when Japan imported coal passage United States and Canada.

Since the 1970s, the economy of Alberta way to diversify. Calgary became the largest financial center of western Canadian tourism and a way to gain increased importance in the economy of the province. In 1988, Calgary hosted the Winter Olympics. Recently, in 2001, the province passed to private companies entering the market for electricity production and distribution.
