Canmore is a town in Alberta located in the Bow Valley within Alberta's Rockies and shares a border with Kananaskis Country.
Canmore was established in 1883 as a hard-working coal mining town servicing Canadian Pacific Railway trains. The community thrived as a mining town due to the rich coal seams that dominate the eastern ranges of the Canadian Rockies until the last of the coal mines shut down in 1979.
The name "Canmore" came from Malcolm of Canmore, King of Scotland from 1057 to 1093. The town was named in his honor. Canmore translated actually means "big head".
