While Alberta venues were absent from the list, an Edmonton photographer thinks the city has a shot next year, especially thanks to some recent additions to its burgeoning downtown.

“You have that variety of the river valley and urban [areas], so it’s a nice mixture,” Jill Sakowsky, who runs the @instagramyeg account, said. “Everything’s pretty close in proximity so you can literally walk in the river valley and 20 minutes later be downtown… There’s so many opportunities to take great photos downtown.”

“Edmonton events seem to be capturing a lot of attention right now,” she added. “The ice castles… Anything new, like the new [Walterdale] Bridge, Rogers Place.”

The social media company said Rogers Place was the most Instagrammed location in Alberta in 2017, followed by the Calgary Stampede.

Toronto was the most Instagrammed Canadian city of the year, followed by Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa, Niagara Falls, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Victoria.

Instagram also revealed the top Canadian hashtags for 2017 and #love was the most popular. That’s pretty darn cute.
