                            Heritage Markers Program

                   Application deadlines: February 1st and October 1st

This program supports the development of heritage markers that promote greater
awareness of the historic people, places, events, and themes that have defined the
character of our province. The markers are ideally sized for placement within parks, along
trails or sidewalks, and in other community locales.

The proposed marker must deal with a subject of provincial significance. Preference will be
given to subjects that are currently underrepresented among existing markers.
Consideration will also be given to ensuring that there is a broad distribution of markers
across Alberta.

An application is more likely to be successful if it includes a strong explanation of why the
proposed subject is of importance to Albertans. It should refer to history books and/or
articles to support this explanation where possible, as well as material from the historical
period itself (newspapers, letters, etc.). Please include the author, title, page numbers for
these sources, where applicable.

Staff of the Historic Resources Management Branch, Alberta Culture will develop the
interpretive narrative, select images, and design the heritage marker. The Alberta Historical
Resources Foundation will finance all production and installation costs.
