I've noticed that Driving Force (a reputable Westen Canadian company with an A+ BBB rating) rents a much wider variety of vehicle types than other companies, so I would start with them:

drivingforce.ca/car-rentals/…index.aspx

I believe Budget also rents vans, but their reputation and BBB score are not stellar:

do make sure you can drive a large van with a regular drivers license in Alberta. Most car insurance won't apply so you will need to buy the supplement. You can also try enterprise however you may find the vans won't include unlimited mileage. For you to hold 'lots of luggage' your going to need to remove a row of seats.

I deal with the Driving Force every now and then, they're a good company.

Here's what you need:

The 15 passenger van is a bit ungainly, I trust you have someone in your group who is used to driving something other than a car. It will fit the bill perfectly though.

Have fun and drive safe.

Cheers,

Terry
