150 Firsts: How Alberta Changed Canada…Forever

To help celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday, the Provincial Archives of Alberta highlighted 150 events that happened for the first time in Canada that featured a unique Alberta connection.

For 150 years, Alberta and its citizens have been at the forefront of Canadian innovation in arts and literature, science, environmental protection, politics, inclusion and diversity, as well as sports and leisure. These 150 Canadian firsts happened because Albertans made them happen. And, for better or worse, these firsts changed Canada…forever.
