The Women of Early Fort Saskatchewan Tour


To celebrate Alberta Culture Days, the Fort Heritage Precinct offered a new themed tour free of charge that explored the history of women and their contributions to our Fort Saskatchewan’s development.

This tour will be offered again in the near future. Check back often for updates!

"Amazing learning connections were made between our study of past and present and your program. Lunch facilities were great. The games and hands on activities we played were so much fun. So many happy faces to be spending time in jail! The tour of village were also extremely well done. Again, the children were kept engaged and involved. The mock trial was great fun. I can’t say enough about your program It is absolutely fanstastic. Your staff does an outstanding job leading the children."
