Come and experience the birthplace of Métis Settlements right here in Alberta. Alberta’s Lakeland is home to one of the largest populations of Indigenous and Métis peoples in Canada, is the proud home of Alex Janvier, and also has a rich history of French and Ukrainian Settlers. Attend one of the many Pow Wows, visit Métis Crossing which is Alberta’s first cultural site or the Portage College Museum of Aboriginal People’s Art & Artifacts. Come to experience some of the best Ukrainian food in the country at the Glendon Pyrogy Festival, or revel in the French tradition of jigging and maple syrup at Cabane A Sucre. Whatever you’re seeking, a rich tapestry of cultural experiences and adventure are awaiting you.
