Alex Decoteau Edukit
A long-distance runner, World War I veteran, Canada’s first Aboriginal police officer and an Olympic athlete, Alex Decoteau is a local hero of legendary proportions. The Alex Decoteau Edukit was created by the Heritage Community Foundation to support the Alex Decoteau Run, developed by the City Centre Education Project in Edmonton. The Project provides inner-city children, many of whom are Aboriginal, with access to a range of activities that are common in middle class schools.

Black Heritage Edukit
The Black Heritage Edukit presents some of the traditions and culture of Black Canadians who settled in the province of Alberta. The settlement communities of Amber Valley, Wildwood, and Bretton are looked at specifically, as are the Black settlers from Oklahoma who made the journey to Alberta. Topics for the instructional plans include human rights, colonialism, geography, and culture and traditions, and the website has everything from quizzes to photogaphs.

Canada's Petroleum Heritage
Alberta’s vast reservoirs of oil and natural gas resources have radically transformed Alberta from a primarily agrarian economy to a vibrant industrial centre. Canada’s Petroleum History explores the extraordinary growth of the oil industry in Alberta and across Canada through the stories of the companies and pioneers who built it.

Celebrating Alberta's Italian Community
Immigrants from Italy began to come to Western Canada in the 1880s to work on the railways and in the mines. Explore the settlement history, culture, traditions, achievements and contributions of Italian-Canadians. The site includes profiles of individuals and organizations, photo albums as well as discussions of painful issues such as discrimination and internment.

Central Alberta Regional Museums Network
The Central Alberta Regional Museums Network (CARMN) Online Catalogue provides access to selected museum artifacts, archival images, and records. Information about the individual institutions is included to help guide you to their museums and archives when traveling in central Alberta.

CKUA Classroom
In many ways, the history of CKUA as a station is a history of Edmonton itself. The Heritage Community Foundation and CKUA Radio Network are proud to have developed the CKUA Edukit to complement the CKUA Sound Archives website and provide information on the station’s background, personalities and historic broadcasts.

CKUA Sound Archives
The CKUA Radio Network is Canada's oldest broadcaster and its sound archives is important to the public life, arts and culture of Alberta. Listen to over 800 hours of CKUA programming including Arts Alberta, Speaker of the Week and Current Affairs.

Creative Edmonton
The Creative Edmonton website is a product of Edmonton Canada’s Cultural Capital 2007 and showcases the range of arts, heritage and cultural activity in Alberta’s Capital City. At the heart of the site is the Edmonton Cultural Inventory undertaken by the Heritage Community Foundation. This includes discussion papers, individual and organizational survey results, and an organizational database of over 500 non-profit and for-profit cultural organizations.

Culture and its Meaning Edukit
Aboriginal Peoples in Alberta and across Canada possess a rich history and heritage. Understanding Aboriginal identity as it relates to culture is important for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples alike. Through the Aboriginal Culture and Its Meaning Edukit, students explore how Aboriginal People used and continue to use traditions, symbols, practices, events and objects to express their identity. Active participation by students in diverse activities promotes learning and ultimately contributes to their overall understanding of Aboriginal People and communities in Alberta.
