Francophones in Alberta: Courage and Determination

The Musée Héritage Museum of St Albert, Alberta have a bilingual exhibition called Francophones in Alberta: Courage and Determination, which tells the story of the French in Alberta. It is based on the Francophone Archives Project, a collective venture between the Provincial Archives of Alberta and the Francophone Secretariat of Alberta.

They say that the exhibit includes ‘artifacts from our own collection to reflect the Francophone history of the St Albert area, highlighting objects from local families to help illustrate the greater experience of Francophone immigrants across the province. Interpretive panels will trace the history of French Albertans through their associations, both economic and cultural, its religious and early pioneering work’.

The exhibit will run through until June 21, 2015.
