The Provincial Archives stages two to four exhibits per year. Some exhibits are curated by members of the PAA staff and others by individuals and organizations passionate about Alberta's history and heritage.
150 Firsts: How Alberta Changed Canada…Forever
July 1, 2017 – August 1, 2018
Albertans have been at the forefront of Canadian innovations in arts and literature, science, environmental protection, politics, inclusion and diversity, as well as sports and leisure. For Canada’s 150th anniversary, the Provincial Archives of Alberta is highlighting 150 Canadian firsts that occurred because Albertans were the first to make them happen. And, for better or worse, these 150 firsts changed Canada…Forever.
