The area of Canossa is bounded on the east by 112 Street, on the south by 167 Avenue, on the west by a north-south line half a block west of 119 Street, and on the north by rural farmland. Named after a 10th century Italian castle, the ruins of which are still an Italian national monument, the neighborhood of Canossa instills in its residents regal pride.

Canossa has a relatively younger population and only 4% of its residents are above 60. It is considered a fairly new neighborhood as the majority of its buildings were built since 2001 and these consist mainly of single-detached homes. Home ownership in Canossa is almost 100%.

Although the area had a development plan in place by 1948, development didn’t actually begin until the 1990s. Up until then it was mostly an agricultural area and large chunks Canossa remained zoned for farming well in to the 2000s.

With close proximity to Canadian Forces Base, it is ideal for those requiring an easy commute there. Almost half of Canossa residents have recently moved there from elsewhere in Edmonton.
