1JP -- this might not be entirely helpful, but here is the link to the Canadian Citizenship and Immigration page that deals with your situation.
The reason it mightn't be as helpful as you would like is that the immigration officer seems to have significant discretion on making the call. One requirement is that you can "satisfy an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit."

It is up to the discretion of the immigration official.
That being said, a career in the Canadian federal public service generally requires a post-secondary degree; officers are not from the same demographic as security guards, and those I've met have all been thoughtful and considerate -- but then, I am always respectful and honest. I would think they find evasive or dishonest answers are what really send up the red flag.
In that scenario, I imagine your onward tickets provide proof you are not trying to sneakily immigrate into Canada, though I imagine a clearly laid out plan of how you''re; getting from Alberta to NYC might be of benefit.
