Friends of Historical Northern Alberta Society was registered as a not-for-profit society in the province of Alberta in March of 2015. We are based out of Smith, Alberta, with a Board of Directors from across the region.
The mission of Friends of Historical Northern Alberta Society is “To Preserve & Promote the History of Northern Alberta”.
We have are attaining this mission by:
- The introduction of History Check: Everything Needed to Explore Northern Alberta (a website, IOS & Android App)
- By hosting events in Smith, AB that promote area history. When we are firmly established we will assist with other similar event across Northern Alberta.
- By providing engaging and educational posts through several social media channels.
We, as a not for profit, have addressed the issue of sharing multiple historical places, building, stories and other related items, across the vast geographical region of the north and bringing the information onto one site – History Check: Everything Needed to Explore Northern Alberta.
It is an combination of website, IOS & ANDROID apps, that will tell you the stories of the history of our area, show you the historical sights, and to entertain and engage all in our travelling group, we have included recreational opportunities, other points of interest and the services to get you there. We are expecting a public launch in time for you to enjoy the summer season of 2017 – Canada 150.
Each Point of Interest will be placed by geographic coordinates on a map of the area, and will supply you with links to more information about that story or place, whether it be historical references or articles and reviews about a Bed & Breakfast.
Our mandate is to collaborate with other historical societies, governing organizations, economic development groups and individuals to bring these, and other projects, to fruition to not only preserve and promote the history of northern Alberta but also the economic stability, diversity & development needed in our communities. We have over 75 groups and organizations who have expressed an interest in or are currently involved in the History Check project.
We hope you will follow along and take part in helping FHNAS become a leader in the promoting our history in new and inventive ways!
Niyak – To the Future.
