The Canadian Northern Society is preserving prairie heritage through its collection of heritage railway station sites at Big Valley, Meeting Creek and Camrose. The Meeting Creek grain elevator and unique interpretive activities and events combine to create exceptional family experiences. The society’s efforts provide both community and economic benefits, contributing to the central Alberta tourism market. Operated by volunteers, the society is a not-for-profit registered charity.
The Canadian Northern Society celebrates 25 years in 2012 of capturing history and building community. We appreciate your support.
