It's a Nelumbo. Not sure which species though. Maybe Nelumbo lutea, which has white to pale yellow flowers.

Thank you, Darwiniensis.
It looks like the Asiatic Lotus Nelumbo nucifera?

Calgary, AB(Zone 3b)

Possibly a white form of Nelumbo nucifera

How many forms of Nelumbo nucifera are there?

Sorry, part of my message got cut off. It was intended to say:
"Possibly a white form of Nelumbo nucifera or one of several white-flowered hybrids."

Slocum lists 4 white forms of N. nucifera (though the usual form is pink).
