In November, snow is a distinct possibility (on the ground already, or falling) so the hiking may be off limits, depending on how things have gone. You might be stuck to working near the highways.
That having been said, there is a lot to do near the highways. Mount Edith Cavell and Maligne Canyon are close to Jasper townsite and are impressive. The Icefields Parkway will take you the better part of a day to journey, if you photograph like I do, and you won't have very much daylight in November (Edmonton is at 54 North, so you will get between 8 and 10 hours of daylight depending on what part of November). If you do the Parkway, plan for it to be a one-way trip and spend the night in Calgary, Banff townsite or Lake Louise.
Jasper National Park is my favourite national park in Canada. It's much less busy than Banff National Park and just as beautiful, if not moreso. Fresh snow on all the mountains will make for some beautiful photographs.
Take the weather seriously. Unless you live in the Sierra Nevada, the weather even in November may surprise you. -20 C is possible; -10 C is probable. To most Canadians this is not too bad; to someone from California, this might seem impossibly cold. Dress for the weather.
