300+ Alberta North Communities & Regions
History Check has included communities and regions north of the Edmonton International Airport. If you are a municipality in this area we encourage your participation.
As Council or Administration to a Municipality, County, Village, Town or City, we encourage you to investigate the History Check Heritage and Travel Companion App.
The History Check team and other heritage & tourism organizations are working cooperatively at adding the historical sites and stories of Alberta north as well as other attractions. We encourage you as a municipal district to become involved in this grass roots initiative.
Financial contributions and information about the services and attractions for community guests and residents are needed.
This is how it works:
Home Map is zoomable to display one or multiple communities & regions.
Each of the Home Map Icons opens a Community Menu. Users can select one category – or all.
Users can see from color coded graphic icons what they can explore. More can be seen through zoom.
The site listing or Point of Interest displays images, more information and links, allowing users immediate connection.
Other History Check features include “Near Me” location services, and two interest driven search functions. The main search displays results in a list or map format. Our Sponsors Search displays Name with website link and phone number for immediate contact.
ALL site listings are free. Search functions are free to nonprofits, while businesses are charge an annual fee of $350 – less than a $1 a day.
Supporting History Check Supports Your Community(s).
Free site listing with minimal cost advertising options.
Free site listings with no charge to search functions.
Telling the story or your history where it happened.
Becoming Involved as Municipality
A simple rule of thumb is population + square km’s and divide by 2 with a $250 minimum. We understand that there will be fluctuations due to budgets. Discuss it with your council and see what you are able to contribute. Give us a call and lets discuss it.
We are a new society who has done what has been described as impossible. Now that History Check is live we need to let northern Alberta know of the tool that they have at their fingertips. You can help by adding History Check information & download link to your website, advertising on digital signage and talking to your Chamber of Commerce, and various organizations in your community.
Lets get your information onto the app. We are looking for municipal campground, parks, trails, cemeteries, community halls, rec centres and any other site that encourages guests &residents to explore more. Each site requires up to 3 images, location, description and any links that you have available. Some collaborating MD’s have shared their Heritage Surveys with us to begin the process of identifying historical sites and stories.
Share the following images on your social media channels and use the hash tag #more2explore.
If you would like a presentation or have additional questions, please contact Sheila Willis at 780-805-1390 or firstname.lastname@example.org
