Canmore is a town in Alberta, near the southeast boundary of Banff National Park. It is located in the Bow Valley within Alberta’s Rockies.

Canmore was named in 1884 by Donald A. Smith, an employee of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The name originates from a town on the northwest shores of Scotland named in honour of King Malcolm III of Canmore. The anglicized version of the Gaelic Ceann Mór, Canmore has been variously translated as “big head” or, more likely, “great head” or “chief”.
