Chinook Country Historical Society



The objective of the Chinook Country Historical Society is "to promote a greater understanding of Canadian and Alberta history in Chinook Country for people of all ages." CCHS, in part, promotes its objectives through:

* A Monthly Program of presentations of historical interest from September through May, 2010-2011;

* Save the date for this year's Historic Calgary Week, July 23 through August 2, 2010. Come join us to celebrate the 20th anniversary of HCW that promises to be better than ever. Watch this web site for more information as the program develops.

Anyone wishing to volunteer for Historic Calgary Week can contact Val Jobson by email at or by phone at 403-283-1393.

* Sponsoring books and anthologies that highlight Calgary and Alberta's history
