Celebrating 150 Years of Canada

150 Years of Canada imageOn July 1, 2017, Canada will mark a major milestone in its history when the nation celebrates its 150th birthday.

To commemorate the occasion, we have joined with several other Alberta-based companies to sponsor the Canada 150in150 initiative – a digital story sharing campaign that gives Albertans the opportunity to enter video stories showcasing our people, our places and our ways of life for the chance to win amazing prizes and awards.

The Canada150in150 Project is about sharing the great Canadian stories the world has not yet heard or seen. We want to show them how great it is to live, play and work in Alberta. Share your story and you could be one of the 150 Albertans featured in the Canada150in150 Legacy Book, be honoured at the Canada150in150 Ceremony and Celebration Event, and receive a Canada150in150 Legacy Medallion.

Alberta’s outstanding storytellers are invited to submit their tales about their aspirations, experiences or achievements that are shaping Alberta and Canada’s future. Themes for this contest are focused on Technology, Arts and Community.

How to enter?

It’s as simple as using your cell phone to create and submit a two-minute video along with a written summary and a photo. Submit your story by May 26, 2017.

Visit the Canada 150 in 150 website for more information or to enter your story.
